Gtt Test For Diabetes
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.

Yes: There is more than one type of glucose testing. No matter which is used, if a test is positive, women should see an OB or endo provider or diabetes educator as soon as possible for an explanation of the test results, the condition and the next steps to take. A positive test does not necessarily mean women will need to take Insulin shots so they should not fear going in for followup. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
36 wk pregnant.My fasting,1hr,2hr result of 3 hr GTT test r normal,only 3hr has borderline high value-142.Is it still called gestational diabetes?
Why is GTT used to determine sugar issues rather than glycosylated hemoglobin test? Seems the latter would be better at predicting diabetes/low sugar.

For oral glucose tolerance test - 2 drs saying different things. At 1hr result was 101, at 2 hrs it was 65. Problem/possible pre-diabetes or not?
Hypoglycemia: This lower than expected sugars can represent a pre-daibetes state. I would be very careful with your diet and carbs and if you are overweight it is time to get this under some control. There is a feeling that these periods of hypoglycemia are evidence of a Insulin resistance developing. ...Read more

Can an oral glucose tolerance test be used to diagnose diabetes like a blood draw will if you're not pregnant?
Yes: However there are several different criteria for diagnosing diabetes, depending upon whether you're using GTT data, fasting glucoses, post-prandial glucoses or hba1c's. Check w/ your doctor. In reality, the exact diagnosis is an arbitrary distinction made upon a continuous line of time and data. ...Read more

What can be the cause of excessively increased thirst? Had diabetes since two years but now is under complete control. GTT is normal.
I have failed my glucose challenge test i was like 9.4. I have gtt next week. How can I pass gtt test? I am really worried about it. Please advise me.
Don't worry: I assume you are pregnant and had an initial screening glucose level that was high. Many people with this will nevertheless pass the gtt. If you don't, you need to keep in mind that this is related to the pregnancy, and will likely resolve after delivery. There are various ways to control your sugar during pregnancy with diet and exercise. Worrying will not help. ...Read more
I have to have a gtt done and am on 500mg metformin how long should I stop taking metformin before taking the test as i wont to get a true reading?
Blood Glucose: The initial test for diabetes is a fasting (8-12 hours) blood glucose test - usually done by a finger prick check but can also be done by a blood draw. Typically fasting blood sugar values below 100 are considered non-diabetic, 100-126 pre-diabetes, and greater than 126 as defined by diabetes. A hgba1c blood test can then be done to monitor progress of treatment as this is a roughly 3 month avg. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Testing for diabetes: Hi. The tests for diabetes (fasting glucose, post-challenge glucose, 3-month average glucose, and random glucose) all have their strengths and weaknesses. A1c is an excellent test and vital to the modern management of diabetes; it's NOT the most sensitive diagnostic test, however. Fasting and post-challenge glucoses can both reveal more subtle abnormalities. Random glucose is a blunt instrument. ...Read more
