Taterbean- Regarding my losses, I actually did suspect high blood sugar could have been a factor in my missed m/c... before I knew I had miscarried (I was supposed to be around 11 weeks) I tested after a meal and it was 200. A few days later I found out I miscarried at 9 weeks, and I always wondered if my high blood sugars had anything to do with it. Of course, many things go through your mind at that point. Sorry for your previous loss as well.

Thanks for the advice

Failed 1 Hr Glucose Test


I am new to this forum but wanted to post my recent experience for any women going through something similar. This is my first pregnancy so I am experiencing everything for the first time. I had my 1 hr glucose test Friday morning (3/9/12). I got my results later that day-and was told my level was high at 160 and the cutoff is 135. I was too scared to eat anything before the test so I know it was nothing I ate that could have caused the high levels. I was terrified!! I went first thing Monday morning for the 3 hr test a nervous wreck after fasting for 12 hrs. My doctor called me the following day to let me know I passed!! My level at fasting was 83, 1 hr was 164, 2nd hr was 124, 3rd hr was 100. So it is possible to fail the 1 hr and pass the 3 hr

Welcome to the forum! 160 for the 1st hour is actually not so bad or uncommon. With many women the number comes down by the 2nd hour anyway. I had 200 at the 1st hour with my last pregnancy, so because it was so high, they automatically diagnosed me as GD. Didn't have to do the 3 hour. But I wonder if it would have come down enough by the 2nd hour... I'll never know. Still, being at 200 is NOT good.
