75gms glucose..
1.I understood the first two but what is the last one?

hi dear, it is glucose tolerance test... you will be given a very sweet drink of glucose, and your blood sugar levels will be measured at interval of 1 hr, then 2 hrs... you are not supposed to drink water also, as it will affect the result... so yes you have to go with empty stomach... go early in the morning and get it done...

It's a GTT test (Glucose Tolerance Test).It checks Gestational Diabetes in Pregnancy.
You can have water before test (one sip- if really thirsty) but if u can avoid, than avoid as you have to drink 75gm glucose mix in water.
ur blood will be drawn after 1 hr than again after 2hr of drink. Take Care that there should be 8 hr gap between your dinner in night and blood sample.
