  • I was aloud to eat but you cant eat alot of sweets, so avoid candy, soda, poptarts, cookies and things of that nature. I always stuck with water to drink and a sandwich or something that didnt have a lot of sugar.

  • O and since your appt is at 1 I would eat at about 11:30 but no later than 12:30

  • I did, and I ended up having to take the 3 hour test. They don't do a baseline test with the 1 hour, so I recommend you not eat for 2 hours before that test so it's lower to begin with. The 3 hour test was awful.

  • I ate about an hour before I left before my 1 hour est (so 2 hours before the test) and I failed it, I passed the 3 hour test though!! I say don't if u can avoid it and just eat big later.

  • If you want a false positive eat but if you want a true result DONT EAT I have had 4 friends who ate 5 hours b4 their test (the dr usually says nothing within 4 hours of the test) and all of them got a false positive.
