    Default Glucose Test

    I had my GTT this past Thursday and I just got the call back with the results today. I tested borderline at 141 (140 is as high as they want it to be). They said I just need to watch my carbs a little. I don't have to do the 3 hour test and I don't have to test my blood sugar, I just have to not go nuts-o with the carbs and I'll be fine. This is a major relief since I had GD with DS2 and had to test 4 times a day and give myself insulin injections twice a day.

    I'm glad you don't have to retest and they only said to watch carbs. That's great! I met a lady at the 3 hour who failed with a 140 and she had to do the 3 hour. Gah.

    Anyway...yay for no technical GD!

    That's great that you didn't have to go through the 3 hour! And yay for no testing and insulin. I'm currently doing everything humanly possible to avoid having to do insulin.

    Lucky they went that route. I was 142 at my 1 hour and I had to go for the 3 hour. Thankfully that one came out normal.

    I'm glad they are letting you manage it with diet and not do the 3 hour test.

    Glad they aren't making you take the 3 hr test! I know that must be quite a relief for you.

    Glad your numbers were low enough and that they just told you to watch the carbs intead of everything you had to do last time.
