See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
This post is a follow up to my last
I now have my 3 hour glucose test scheduled for next monday at 8:30am.. Wish me luck!! Im not gonna lie im scared and nervous.
I also feel like I have lost all confidence in this practice. I had to get doctor approval to make the appointment. So while I was talking to one of the doctors I asked her about the test and stuff. I told her I didnt think I would be able to keep the drink down (knowing my body) and asked her what will happen if I am not able to do so (I was told it was automatic failure by the nurse).
She told me I have to keep taking it until I can keep it down. She said I have no other choice. She said at some point my body will just have to keep it down (glad to know she apparently is able to tell my body what to do). She also said the nurse was wrong and my diet has nothing to do with why I failed my first test. She said if anything I should have passed it and 149 is really high (the cutoff is 140).
She told me I probably have GD and until I complete the test (AKA keep the drink down) I will be treated as if I have GD. She said I will have to be put on insulin, prick my finger 4x a day and go to a diabetic class. I know for sure she is wrong about the insulin, it is not required unless your levels cant be controlled. I know for sure I am NOT taking that without being diagnosed with GD first. This woman sounded like a loon and I dont feel very comfortable with this practice anymore
