One Hour Glucose Instructions

To be completed between 26-28 weeks:

  1. You may eat and drink normally before drinking glucola.  For the most accurate results, please limit the amount of sugars you consume before the test.
  2. Refrigerate the glucola before drinking it.
  3. We must draw your blood EXACTLY 1 HOUR after you drink the glucola.  The hour begins when you have finished drinking the glucola.
  4. Drink the glucola 1 hour prior to your appointment time and arrive at least 10 minutes before the hour is up.  If you are late, you may need to repeat this test at a later date.
  5. Drink the glucola within a 5 minute time period.
  6. DO NOT eat or drink anything during that hour except water.
  7. When you arrive for your appointment please inform the receptionist when you finished drinking the glucola.
