Has anyone has a 3 hour glucose test done? If so, what should I expect? I have to go in next Tuesday for mine.

My fasting insulin level is still 42.3 so that's why they're doing this other test. I am sick of all the tests already and I'm sure this is just the start of it.

I had it when I was pg with my son because my 1 hour came back borderline high.

Anyways, you'll first get blood drawn and then drink the stuff (you get more than you would if it were only an hour test). It's not that bad. I mean it's bad, but it's tolerable. Then, after 1 hour you'll get blood drawn and then after 2 hours and then 3 hours. The worst part is hanging out and doing nothing while you're waiting. You can either elect to get a thing (sorry I'm not a medical person) inserted in your arm so they don't have to poke you 4 times or you can just get poked. I chose to get poked because I couldn't handle it psychologically having a tube in my arm to collect blood.

Good luck!

Thanks! I was hoping the could just leave a cathider (sp) in my arm so I didn't have to be poked over and over.

Yes, I have had the 3 hour ggt done! UGH!

I had orange flavored stuff to drink.......it was like an orange soda with way too much sugar in it. It is like Shelly said, "you have your blood drawn every hour for the next 3 hours." It isn't that bad, the worst part for me was just feeling yucky afterwards from drinking that stuff. HTH
