Okay I just found this info from the American Diabetes Association. If one of the #'s falls over the guidelines, they repeat the test, if two do they consider you to have GD.
Keep in mind every doctor/lab has their own values but it will give you a general idea & your #'s are all below these guidelines.
Fasting 95 mg/dl or higher
One hour 180 mg/dl or higher
Two hours 155 mg/dl or higher
Three hours 140 mg/dl or higher

I'm not an expert.. But those numbers look okay for me.. With my numbers I have to follow, Fasting is kinda high, same with your 1 hour and 2 hour blood draw.. This is going against what I need to be below.. Fasting needs to be below 90, one hour needs to be below 140, 2 hours needs to be below 120..

But this the range I need to be under and I've never did the glucose test with this pregnancy.. This is when I eat my meals..

If the Dr. says your borderline.. My advice is to watch your blood sugars.. I actually passed my 3 hour test, but I was borderline.. And in the end I did have GD..


How come they gave you your results, but didn't tell you if you passed or not?

I don't know either. I have to go take my one hour on tuesday and I'm sure i'm going to fail it. I've noticed when I eat I get so dizzy and tired and sweaty...of course the sweating could be because it's so daggon hot and humid here

Most women have no signs or symptoms when they have gestational diabetes.. The only time I get those feelings is when I don't eat enough and my blood sugar drops to a vary low level.. So stay positive.. Your going to pass..

I have no idea about the numbers. Im curious as to why they gave them to you??

In my experience, if there is a problem your doc calls you right away, if not you will not hear anything till your next appointment.

The standard #'s are below 90 for fasting, below 120 for 1 hour and below 100 for 2 hour. No idea if that's different for the glucose drink test though. I've always failed mine by huge numbers.

Wow! That's super low.. 100 after 2 hour.. Maybe it's different with normal diabetic vs gestational diabetes mothers.. I test 2 hours after I eat and it has to be under 120, not 100.. I'd think I'd die if I had to go below that number.. lol I'd be living off of just Salad and no carbs.. This is without using any insulin during the day.. I'm going to have to ask my Endo at my next appointment about this..
