1-hour glucose test - still feel sick - pls respond


Does still feeling sick 6 hours after the 1-hour glucose tolerance test mean I probably failed?

I thought I was going to faint and vomit. Hours later I still feel queasy. Anyone felt like this but still passed their screening test?

Do you feel sick from the sweet drink? I've never heard of feeling sick meaning your not going to pass the test. It just kick starts your insulin in your body and measures the levels at the end of the hour, that's all. Not something you should be able to feel. Have you eaten, or did you eat prior? Maybe all that sweet with not enough food is what's not helping you feel good.

Try not to worry either way, your results will be back in a couple days. Also, they'll send for another 3 hour test if this shows something, so this one doesn't mean something is wrong for sure.

Maybe what I really should ask is can anyone recommend something that will make me feel better.

I am wondering if i've had a hypoglycemic reaction to the glucose drink. I still feel horribly nauseated and it's been hours. I'm waiting on a nurse call back now. I've eaten 2 meals since the test and it didn't help.

I had mine earlier today & didn't feel sick ... but I think everyone reacts differently. I have a friend who felt ill for hours & passed the 1 hr test.

The nurse was not helpful at all. Apparently i'm just supposed to wait until I feel better. I am never going to do this again. I will go on a diabetic diet or monitor my blood sugar, whatever, but never taking that glucose drink again.

Thanks for responding.

When I had the GTT test it made me feel very sick. I had to be taken in the back and monitored because my heart rate climbed, I felt weak, shaky and very sick to my stomach. I was done for the rest of the day, I went home, ate and just stayed in bed feeling so sick but I passed. As my doctor said I not only passed but passed with flying colors cause my numbers could have been double and I still wouldn't have been in the fail area. So I think everyone just handles it differently and it doesn't mean you won't pass.

I also felt really nauseated after the 1 hour glucose tolerance test--didn't get much done the rest of the day, ended up having to take a long nap that afternoon.

And there was no problem at all! So, not necessarily a bad sign.

I got sick after only drinking half the glass of sweet-water, nearly passed out in the hospital, then started balling my eyes out for no reason while leaving. I felt sick for maybe two hours after I got home. I took a nap and ate which made me feel better. I got my results back last week and they said I passed and did great. So I don't think you can judge how you felt that day on the results.

thanks for responding. It's nice also to know that I'm not the only one who felt like crap.
