In brief: A check for diabetes
The GTT is a way for us to see who is at highest risk of diabetes.
It is recommended that everyone be screened during their pregnancy, usually around 24-28 weeks. We will give you a bottle of a very sugary drink. You have five minutes to drink it all! Then a hour later we do a blood test to see how you metabolized the sugar. If you are high risk you may need further testing or treatment.
