This week I found out I failed my one hour glucose test. I know have to go take the three hour test. The doctor said I could have had something in my system from the night before that had my sugar level high and made me fail the first test. I will have a twelve hour fast before my first blood is drawn, then drink the sugar drink and have blood drawn every hour for three hours. He also suggested cutting back on my carbs and watching how many grams of carbs in the foods and drinks I have daily. The good thing is all the fruits I really enjoy are lower in sugars on the glycemic index!
