  • they will give u a drink to chug when u 1st get there. mine tasted like flat sprite. then u wait an hour and have your blood taken. I just did mine last week. Not a big deal!! Dont worry.

  • I ate a light breakfast and then chugged the drink. I thought that that small amount in 10 minutes wouldn't be bad but oh my. It made me feel soooo sick. Thank God I passed all three times but I swear I will never drink a 7up, sprite or squirt for as long as I live!

  • I wouldn't have too much sugar before taking it.

  • since its in the am dont eat anything. they made me come back cause i had toast. and the liquid doesnt taste too bad at first but it made me feel very sick. never felt that sick in my life. if you throw it up then you have to go back and do it again. its horrid but you can do it. just dont think about it.

  • Good luck! Avoid eating or drinking anything with sugar in it before the test.

  • Your glucose test? Stay away from as much sugar as possible and when you drink the test, take it like a shot; it tastes nasty.

  • Don't eat lots of sugar and then u will chug a drink (mine was orange) you have 5 min to drink it all and then in an hour they take ur blood to see how ur body is breaking down the sugar. Some women get sick because its such a big dose of sugar and if that happens you have to redo it :( I never got sick but both times I got really hot an antsy about 20 min after drinking it but that only lasted like 20 min. Good luck!
