GD Testing.

Postby Cath » Thu Jan 02, 2014 3:25 pm

I'm due for my GD test in the next week or so, but I'm thinking about refusing it.
I had the testing with both my boys, and they were negative. And back then they did the normal one hour testing. Now they only offer the 3hr test, 3hrs and 3 blood test just seems way over the top.
I have no risk factors, my diet is very balanced so I really do not see the point going through such a long test for something I am just not at risk for.

Has anyone refused the test here? Did your doctor offer anything else in it's place? I was thinking of asking just to have my urine monitored for sugars?
