Gestational diabetes: Did they do one step or two step approach? What are the other values at 2nd and 3rd hour? 1 hr glucose at 68 sounds good and normal.Based on National Diabetes Data group ,Glucose concentration greater than or equal to these values at TWO or more time points is a positive test.Fasting-105,One hr-190,2hr-165,3hr- 145.Hope this helps
