    I have mine on Monday.
    I just asked my sister what she had to do, she said yeh you drink the stuff and have to wait an hour or so.. joy.. that will be fun.. an hour in the waiting room! Are you allowed to go to the bathroom in that hour?
    She said she didnt have to fast or anything. But she had a scon with jam on it before hand and the jam made her sugar levels look really high and she had to go back and do another.. so if you do eat before hand, make sure its nothing sweet!

    Hi Kell, yes you can go to the bathroom while you wait, I had to go twice! during 3 hrs. you just arent allowed to move much or eat or drink anything during the time except for the glucose test.

    Chrissy - im 34 too, I had to do the GTT due to my high insulin levels from PCOS.

    Ssmiles - any news on your results?

    Do you have to do Urine sample while at the 1 hr testing at all. My mum said they used to have too.

    Thanks guys.. i guess ill see what happens next monday..

    Hi Lorin.. no they give you that sugar drink.. very much like carbonated lemonade.. you drink it then go back to them in an hour and then wash your hands and they prlck your finger, get some blood and put it into a machine thingy which gives your reading. Didnt have to do a urine test at all..

    The Short Glucose Tolerance Test (the 1 hour one) wasnt a full blood test no, just a finger prlck. Not sure about the long one but i was suppose to have a ruitine 28 week blood test yesterday aswell for blood count or something which theyre now just going to do at the same time as i do the Long Glucose Tolerance Test on Monday.
