Glucose Test during Pregnancy

January 12, 2020 0 By Jose Scott


hi so I had a request after my second
trimester video to explain more about my glucose test and what it was like so the
glucose test I had done in a clinic that was close to my home rather than driving
all the way up to the hospital my doctor said it’s fine that I could do
the testing and any private clinic as long as I shared the results with her so
that was kind of a good thing that I didn’t have to drive all the way for 45
minutes so the process was like this I went to the clinic in the morning
because I was asked to go on an empty stomach so I went by about 7:45 in the
morning and I had to give a urine sample as well as a blood sample they took only
one vial of blood and after which they asked me to intake to drink glucose so
since this was a small clinic that was just average clinic near my home and
they did not provide the glucose so I was asked to go out and to buy a pack of
glucose so I found a pack of Glucon D and the thing is with the glueconD
this was a hundred one hundred and twenty five gram pack and you only
required to take 75 grams so at 75 grams of glucose and hundred ml of water so if
this is your glass you’re going to be having almost 3/4 of your glass for a be
glucose so you need to measure 75 grams of glucose and dilute that in to 100 ml of
water so you’ll have to drink that Glucose on an empty stomach and following which
you will have to wait for two hours you can either that’s the reason they
tell you to do this close to home is because you don’t have to wait in the
hospital or wait in the clinic for two hours so after two hours you go back and
you give one more sample of urine and sample of blood they would be able
to give you your test results in after two or three hours maximum so I got my
results on the same date anything below 120 is considered as normal so as long as
long as your levels are below 120 it’s fine there’s nothing to worry about you
can continue with your normal diet if at all your levels are higher maybe after
above 120 or even some of them some of my friends like I had my support group
so some of them were diagnosed with having
gestational diabetes so in that case your doctor will give you steps of what
you are to do whether you have to be put on an insulin injection one of my
friends actually was having a higher glucose and she had to be monitored
constantly and they would give you a little injection shots that you could
give off the insulin but that’s only in a very extreme case and house was a
complicated pregnancy but otherwise you will just have to watch what you eat to
tell you a little more about the product like I purchased a pack of gluconD it
cost me only 27 rupees the testing the glucose testing cost me 250 rupees so
this was all about the glucose test if you have any other questions do let me
