    You can't really "trick" the test. The point is to see if your body can get your sugar's under control in the one hour time frame. If you start the test with your sugar elevated to 125, or something like that, and THEN drink their drink, you could spike all the way to 175 after the drink (even higher). I think passing is under 126. That's a lot of work for the body to get back down to 125 again. However, if you go into the test with a reading of 100, and then spike to 150, it's not so hard to get back down to 125 again in the one hour time frame. IF a person does have diabetes, then their sugar will spike even higher (because the body can't control it as well), AND they will not have the ability to get it down as quickly afterward... thus still failing the test. So, why not give yourself a fighting chance, and start your sugar off a bit lower. Also, believe it or not, whole grain bread will spike your sugar higher than any other food (72 reading) where as table sugar has a reading of 65!! Crazy, isn't it. So... again, stay away from carbs!

    I was only at 95 with dd and that was in the morning. I don't feel I have a risk but you never know.

    Lurking... The nurse told me to fast two hours before the test for some reason. This is the third time I'll be taking it, and I've never been told to fast before hand. Weird. Anyway, I guess that's not really helpful. LOL

    I was supposed to fast from midnight until the appt. at 8:30. Then I was there from 8:30-10:30. I definitely wanted to eat after that!

    It sounds like you will be fine Kia. I have been in the 90's with all of mine, except one was like 102 or something like that. I haven't even watched what I ate before mine. I just ate like I normally would have, so on one I ate a candy bar on the way to the test, and with others I hadn't eaten for maybe an hour or two prior.

    YAY, my test is done! I ate cheese, pickles, celery and bacon for breakfast before the test. LOL. Low carb much? :P I don't know what number I had with DD but I certainly passed just fine. I'm not super concerned.

    Good luck tomorrow Kia!
