Glucose test results? Commander Shepard 18 kids; Jacksonville, Florida 6447 posts

I did my three hour test yesterday morning and I haven't heard back from my doctor yet. She called me same day with the results of my one hour. I had GD with DD, so I was pretty much expecting it with this one. Is it possible that I'm in the clear this time? She said she'd call me with the results if my levels were elevated. Any experience with this?

Yes, they will notify you if your levels are high so I would assume you passed your 3 hour test. I took my 1 hour test and passed with flying colors. Turns out I don't have GD and they will call you within 24 hours if you do or they want to retest you. You could always call the office to check and make sure!

It took them a week to call me with my results, and i'm now insulin dependent ... Maybe call her tomorrow?

I don't think the OB clinic is open tomorrow. :x I am seen at the military hospital down here. I just don't think it's possible that I had it last time and don't have it this time. I will admit, I ate a mint when I was doing my three hour with DD, but I don't think that would have affected my results with her, would it? I am a pretty large lady, so it's not like I'm super unlikely to have it. The suspense is killing me! I just need to know what kind of cookies I need to make for Thanksgiving!



And whether or not I should be monitoring my blood glucose levels...

If you have a machine, i'd monitor them. You've been through it before, so you'll know if your levels re off or not.

I don't really remember the numbers though. :oops: I'll have to Google the averages.
