I think they will consider your routine urine test, family history n weight issue., I think it's not compulsory for all to take..
Here, they offer glucose test to everyone.. But I read that Asians are more prone to it, maybe cos we eat more white rice. Anyway, can't remember if I've said it before, but I failed the glucose test! Started monitoring my glucose levels at home yesterday. Also need to track what I eat. Like yesterday, I cooked everything so ok, but today after outside lunch, it spiked very high. Downloaded an iPhone app to help me track..
Good luck to all taking the test!
May i know what is glucose test?
i am so dead.. i gt to start fasting after 12 midnite.. dont know whether can make it or not.. coz i will wake up hungry in the middle of the nite.. hahas..
My first test - one hour, no fasting - the doctor called me the day after. My second test - three hours, fasting - the doctor called me two days after the test. At first I was happy that she didn't call the day after but well, still failed!
No course .. But I'm going to see a diabetes specialist this Saturday - probably going to talk about diet therapy. Hope no need for medication. But yes, must test every day - I have to prick my finger four times a day, when I wake and two hours after each main meal. I'm not working but if you're working, just have to aga the time .. Better to do for the sake of baby..
yea.. think you can ask your co. or call MOM directly.. coz i told MOM that i was given hospitalization leave from Jan till now.. n i am only due in july.. so its considered unpaid.. but they say i am still under the employment contract.. so i am still entitled!!
so YAY!! less burden for my hubby..
I am gg for my 1st test tomorrow @ NUH.. and was asked to fast after 12 midnite.. and my appt is only @ 8.45am.. dont know if my tummy can last till then a not..
Omg!! I didn't know it's such a big bottle of glucose drink.. I almost fainted when I saw it.. thought it was just a small cup..
I had to drink the whole bottle of orange flavoured glucose drink in 5 mins.. N I failed the test in the end.. By a mere 0.4.. Sad..
I'm seeing the diabetic specialist on Saturday morning to talk about how to manage it but I've read a lot online already. So far, I've been pricking my fingers four times a day for four days already. Only two readings were too high - when I ate outside and when I had hot chocolate. I could actually eat white rice and pasta with no glucose spike. So you may have to monitor what you eat to figure out what works for you. Your specialist should explain more to you.
Btw, the 75g refers to the glucose in the drink - my bottle was about 240ml containing 75g glucose. Imagine if it's a smaller bottle, it would be even sweeter!
