While I personally believe that the GTT is important because an a1c won't necessarily catch GD early, there is no reason to have it done this early if you haven't had GD before. Having type I diabetes I get to skip that test

Just remember, you can refuse any and all medical procedures, it is your right. Don't let them bully or scare you into doing anything you don't want to! I believe we have to be our own advocates and do research ourselves because often doctors make decisions on old information or out of fear of getting sued. I have learned this over the years from dealing with a lot of ****** health care professionals.

Hope you're able to find a medical professional that you trust and will let you have control.
