testing for gestational diabetes
I am a little annoyed right now...on Monday I had a 1-hour blood screen for gestational diabetes because at my latest prenatal checkup my urine had glucose in it. I got a call today saying my blood test was a little high so now I have to go in for the 3-hour glucose tolerance test.
First of all, I am 11 weeks pregnant and I have always been normal weight and over the past 2+ years have been eating very healthily. I walk daily and have been eating exactly as a pregnant woman should be eating. I have no symptoms of diabetes and none of my other recent urine or blood tests have shown anything wrong. The other thing is that before my 1-hour screen, they did not say anything about fasting. Only for the 3-hour test. I had asked my Dr. if just eating could have made my urine sugar level rise, and she said possibly. So why wouldn't they tell you to fast before the 1-hour screen?
Has anyone else had this happen, even when eating well and walking daily??? I am very on edge about this.
Thanks for letting me get this off my chest.
