Can Adderall Affect A Gestational Diabetes Test
No: Theoretically it could, but there is no data in the medical literature to say that it does in real life. Even if it could, you should not ignore that abnormal glucose tolerance test result. If diagnosed with gestational diabetes, regardless of the reason, work to control the sugars by meeting with a dietician, exercising a bit (walking), and working with your doctors. ...Read more
Gestation diabetes is diabetes that occurs during pregnancy. This develops when pregnancy hormones change a patient's metabolism so that they can not regulate their blood sugar. A patient with GDM will have to go on a low sugar and low carb diet and monitor blood sugars very carefully. Sometimes they will require medications. There is a 30% chance ...Read more

Why jeopardize baby?: You could refuse it, but why? Having gestational diabetes could cause significant harm to you and/or your child. Simple dietary changes and/or meds could prevent that damage. There are other blood tests that can be done to assess for gestational diabetes, if you're reluctant to do the oral glucose challenge test. Ask your OB doc to refer you to an endocrine (or diabetes) clinic. ...Read more

If you exercise by walking around during your one hour gestational diabetes test, can it affect your results?

I failed my 1 hr GTT for Gestational Diabetes - score 152. Now I have my 2 hr test next week. Any special diet I should follow to pass this one? Tips?
Paleo diet/low carb:
Stop high carb foods (grains, lentils, potatoes based items). Also avoid milk protein since it causes insulin resistance.
Low carb foods: eggs, fish, meats, vegetables, avocados, some saturated fat (butter, coconut oil), olive oil are very effective. This helps avoid meds.

No.: Gestational diabetes testing involves a screeing test with 50 grams of glucose in liquid, then checking the blood sugar level an hour later. If that level is too high, then a formal glucose tolerance test should be done (several hours long). An A1c level of glycohemoglobin which is elevated would be suspicious for gestational diabetes, but it's not the preferred diagnostic test. ...Read more
Newer recommendation: Is that non-diabetic pregnant women undergo a 2-hour 75-gram oral glucose tolerance test at 24-28 weeks of gestation. Women should be fasting for this test, and a fasting glucose level should be included. If any one of the following values are abnormal, you have gestational diabetes: fasting at 92 or above (mg/dl), one-hour at 180 or above, two-hour at 153 or above. ...Read more
A Drink/Bloodwork: Some obs do this at their office, or you go to a lab. The test is done first thing in the morning after you have not eaten overnight. They draw your blood to check the "fasting" (pre-breakfast) blood sugar, then you drink a bottle of liquid with 75 grams of sugar. Blood is drawn at 1, 2, and 3 hours after the drink. If 2 of 4 levels are elevated then you'll be diagnosed with gestational diabetes. ...Read more
Your doc knows you: Your doctor has way more information about you than we do. He is in a much better position to answer this question. Lots of things go into the decision besides your personal history of gestational diabetes. Weight, age, family history, other blood tests, you physical exam etc. Trust your doc or find a doc you trust. ...Read more
My doctor has made a big deal and classified me with gestational diabetes, but I didn't fail the glucose test I was just really close. Why?

Maybe: You should communicate that fact to your OB MD especially if the test result is abnormal. ...Read more
Ignorance is bliss?:
Hi. I don't understand your attitude. If you know poor glucose control is bad for the baby, your reluctance (or refusal) is hard to understand. Ignoring reality doesn't make it go away. Just some thoughts.
Generally, you can refuse ANYTHING a doctor recommends, but be aware you may harm the fetus. Go ahead and get an abortion if you don't want the pregnancy. Otherwise, try to be healthy. ...Read more
Possible: The 3 hr GTT is designed to diagnose diabetes. You need 2 out of 4 values above the following: fasting-95, 1hr-180, 2hr-155, 3hr-140. Only 1 abnl value is not diagnostic of gdm. Your doc may use a different scale or repeat this fasting test if you have risk factors. Some docs may start finger-stick checks 5x/day if you are "borderline" or just restrict your diet. Usually 1 abnl is neg for gdm. ...Read more
