As I posted previously, my doctor ordered an oral glucose tolerance test because my fasting blood glucose was of concern (5.7- I thought it was 5.6 but called to confirm. ugh).
Since she scared the bejeesus out of me, I have since been very careful with my diet, i.e., I've practically eliminated simple sugar & carbs.
I just read on a few sites that in preparation for OGTT, the patient "is instructed not to restrict carbohydrate intake in the weeks or days prior to the test".
They don't say WHY.
Now I don't know what to do. Will the glucose drink they give me kind of shock my system and I won't be able to process it, leading to higher results? Or will the results be "lower" because I have been eating better?
