Q:

Hi,

Can anyone say at what time GCT test must be done?

Before or after breakfast?



Amruta Naik Rebecca Prakash

Glucose tolerance test is done 2hrs post having glucose. U may have breakfast before consuming glucose.

Check with your doctor, i went empty stomach then took glucose 70 gms.

Chk with the dr... I went in my 8th month for the same... With empty stomatch....

Empty stomach in morning

I took breakfast around 10 am nd my doctor did that test at 12 pm without having anything for atleast 2 hrs nd waiting fr 1 hr after taking glucose nd then they took the samples my result was too high

They have done 3 months of sugar rest nd it came negative now again they are asking me to take glucose test with empty stomach

Trust your doctor and go for the test Mrudula, if its gestational diabetes then medication is required.
