Will splenda mess up your glucose test?

I have my 1hr glucose test today at 11:15. I was wondering if I put splenda in my tea if it would affect my test results at all. She said I was fine to eat before hand, but not to have anything really sweet.

  • Splenda does not have glucose in it. But it's pretty bad for you so I would skip it just because of that.

  • I've never heard of a GTT being done on a patient that was allowed to have anything other than water before hand. Are you sure about your pre test instructions?

  • Yes. This is my second pregnancy and with the first one they let me eat before hand as well and I passed it. I just called yesterday to make sure and she said it was fine.

  • Well I passed it! I know splenda is not recommended when you are pregnant, but once in a while I like it in my tea because regular sugar is calories and I'm trying to watch my weight gain since I'm on the heavier side.
