By one friggen point. Because I wasn't fasting. They can bite me.
ooooh poop! So now what?
They suggested I take the three hour, but that isn't going to happen at least not with them. If the midwife practice thinks I need to take it in a couple weeks then I will. But I honestly don't believe I have it. My weight gain is less than what I had gained last time, and I ate a bowl of cereal four hours before I drank the Glucola. I think it was the not fasting, I knew it was going to fail me for that. If it was something waaay over the one point then I would be worried but oh well.
Also the phlebotomist had the tourniquet on my arm for longer than a minute (and blew my vein) that can cause higher blood sugar in the sample as well.
Was that the 1 hour test you failed or the 2 hour? Because around here the 1 hour test is NOT fasting. If you should have been fasting and weren't can you re-do the test you already did?
Ok and I am going to worry even less now. I just called the lab, they don't even flag it for High until 180, mine was 136.
It was the one hour. When I had DS it was supposed to be fasting. If a patient called the lab to ask for instructions on the test we tell them to fast for at least 8 hours.
Yeah, if you only failed by 1 point, and it was no where close to the WARNING high level, then, forget about the 3 hour. Whatever.
Ok, PHEW. Glad you won't be flagged! I did my 1 hour yesterday and it wasn't fasting. Weird. Anyways, glad it's all good now!
I'm glad it wasn't an astronomical number above the cut off. I agree that u can let your new midwife decide and not the mean OB.
I think you sound perfectly fine. That's funny though, 1 point!
