  • I am hypoglyceic and was gestational diabetes with both of my pregnancies.

    I have never been tested for my hypoclycemic episodes. I do know that if you are hyposlycemic then you are at a greater risk for getting gestational diabetes. I am not sure what kind of testing you may be going for.

    sorry I cant be more help!

  • I was diagnosed w/ hypoglycemia when I was in h.s. and I did not have gestational diabetes with either of my pregnancies. I don't remember any tests either. Sorry, I'm no help. It runs in my family and I also have anemia and MVP.

  • I have hypoglycemia and have had it since elementary school. I also didn't have GD with any of my pregnancies. I never have gone in for special testing either. It doesn't matter why I have hypoglycemia in my book though either because I have it and have to deal with it.
