Pregnancy - Glucose Tolerance Test

(5 Posts)

Does anyone know what the range of results for normal is?

My midwife is away, so I have been given a number, 5, but told no units. I assume it is ok as surely they would have said otherwise, but would be good to know what range I am looking at

Can anyone help?

if you had a GTT, you should have 2 results. without knowing both, difficult to comment. 5 is normal

No, where I live they only do the blood test two hours after taking the glucose. No test st the end of fasting

2 hours post glucose result should be below 7.8 mmol/l so 5 is fine
