Glucose in urine but not in finger prick test, any ideas???


Today I had my urine checked it had .1 glucose in it. She then performed a finger prick test and it was 3.1. She said anything less than 6 was fine. Has anybody had this happen to them before? What does it mean?

Could just be a bad catch or a condition in pregnancy where you spill glucose will right itself post birth. I had +3 but didn't get GD x

No advice on the glucose in the urine but a 3.1 finger prick is actually low blood sugar so I wouldn't worry about it.

Thank you for the advice. I have to go to the clinic today and see what they say. I have been really careful not eaten a single biscuit, cake or sweet for a week!! It is killing me as I have such a sweet tooth x

I've read it's normal for there to be a little because the kidneys just have such a hard time during pregnancy.
