  • If you threw up the test doesn't count. They will make you take the one hour test over again. Eat something light before you go in. You have 5 minutes to drink the stuff, so just sip on it.

    I never had that problem because I love that stuff. Also, you can also see if they have a different flavor. They have orange and lemon lime. Try a different flavor if you think that might help. If they took your blood sample anyway after an hour tell your doctor what happened and get another one hour test. It doesn't count at all if you throw up. You have to go back in some other time.

  • There are many, many alternatives to the one hour test. The sweet stuff is 50 grams of glucose. You can eat something or drink something else w/ 50 grams of glucose in the same time period (5 minutes). Talk to your doctor about that.
