Question about 1 hour Glucose test - I have it in the morning

I have my 1hr Glucose test tomorrow morning.
My doctor's office told me to fast after 12midnight...but I remember reading on here that a lot of you didn't fast.

I'm worried because my sugar is low to begin with (I'm hypoglycemic) and if I don't eat at all in the morning, I think I'm going to fail.

They told me I could choose to fast, or just eat something light before the test. I didn't eat anything since I had the test done really early in the morning, but I know a lot of people did and were fine.

I would just eat something low on the glycemic index that won't spike your blood sugar much (like something with more protein than carbs)

I would call and tell them that. It seems each office has different rules. I was told to eat before I went in, preferably protein and no sugar. I passed, thank God! Best of luck to you!

Also when you fill out the form at the lab before the test, they ask you if you fasted or not-- so I guess they take that into account when looking at your results?

Well, eggs are good-- but you have to cook those, which I wouldn't want to do either right before running out for a test! How about hard-boiling one the night before?

A glass of milk will be filling but will not spike your blood sugar, if milk is appealing in the morning.

A handful of nuts or sunflower seeds.

OK I can do milk and a hard boiled egg - thanks! I have to bring something with me too because I just have a feeling my sugar is going to crash after I drink that stuff...

I had mine this morning.

My doctor told me not to eat anything for 4 hours before the test. I opted to have it first thing in the morning and I didn't eat since dinner last night.

Re: Question about 1 hour Glucose test - I have it in the morning

My doctor told me that I could fast if I wanted to but she prefers that I eat something before the test. I ate eggs that morning before the 1hr test and failed.
I just took the 3 hr test this past Saturday and for that one you definitely have to fast. I hope I passed. I will get my results this saturday at my appt.

Not sure what the right thing to do is, some ate and passed others fasted and passed. Everyone is different.

Good luck to you.

ETA: Choose the orange drink, it was ok to drink. I had that one for the one hr.
Now that I went for the 3 hr, I drank the coke one...YUCK! I could barely get it down.

I have my 1-hour on Thursday morning at 10:30. My doc said don't eat anything immediately before the test, but I could have breakfast at like 7:30 a.m. and be fine. I'll probably just sleep in late and not eat! Chat Icon

I was told to eat a normal breakfast and lunch and then nothing else after that, and had my test at 4:30.

since seeing the nutritionist for my diabetes- she has me eating small snacks throughout the day, nothing that will raise my bloodsugar or let them drop.....what about trying a part skim string cheese?!?! a 4 ounces carb control yogurt, or a special k granola bar...all low in carbs and tasty (thank god since i eat them EVERYDAY!!!).
good luck tomorrow!!! you'll do great!!! this may be one time the hypoglycemia will work in your favor!!! let us know how it goes...Chat Icon Chat Icon

I would fast at least a few hours before the test. I think my MD made me fast 1 hour (I had an apple and hour before) and failed. Also the drink should elevate your sugar, not drop it.

Re: Question about 1 hour Glucose test - I have it in the morning

Hi girls, I decided to fast so I had dinner last night and that was it til this morning when I drank that juice at 10am for the test. They took my blood again at 11am and I'll find out tomorrow if I passed or failed.

I felt my sugar spike up high and then on the way home it crashed (which I had a feeling it would), luckilly I brought a banana and a chocolate bar with me.

If I failed this test, I have to take a THREE hour test nextChat Icon Chat Icon
