I bought myself a blood glucose meter yesterday, as I wanted to start checking my own blood sugars. I was preparing to deny the 1 hour glucose test at my next prenatal (I'm 24 weeks currently). I followed the guidelines on this website:
I am also 24 years old, a healthy weight, and have no family history. I eat primarily paleo/traditional foods and exercise a few times a week.
I woke up and took my fasting level: 75 @ 8:52am
Then I ate some boiled white potatoes (which I never ever eat. Did this on purpose)
1 hour later : 159 @ 9:52am
2 hours later: 71 @10:52am
I saw on Livestrong.com that for the 3 hour glucose test:
"A fasting glucose higher than 95, a one-hour level above 180, a two-hour level over 155 or a three-hour measurement over 140 is diagnostic of gestational diabetes."
