I've had the hardest time trying to track down the ingredients of the glucose tolerance drink for gestational diabetes screening! (I have several food allergies, including corn).

I finally was able to get the lab (Quest Diagnostics) to tell me exactly what's in it. I thought I'd share in case anyone else is looking for the ingredients list.

Orange/Fruit Punch/Lemon Lime flavors:

Dextrose from corn
Citric Acid from corn
Natural Flavoring corn
Sodium Benzoate
Yellow #6
Purified Water

Simply Pure flavor:

Dextrose from corn
Potassium Sorbate
Purified Water

yeah.. lovely stuff. glad there aren't even more chemicals in it, but it really does look like a lab experiment doesn't it?

My midwife did the GTT at my house for me so what I drank was 4 tablespoons of sugar mixed into as much water as I felt I could drink in 5 minutes. They sure complicated things, didn't they?

My midwives offer grape juice instead... Just pure juice.

My MW does the test an hour after eating a huge meal(typically breakfast) because she says that gives a better picture of how your body is actually processing sugars.
