Dentists and Glucose tolorance tests

Filed under: Uncategorized — Crystal @ 3:44 pm

Celeste had her first dentist appointment today and was an excellent patient.  She did everything they asked her to do!  She has no problems (no over bite/cross bite ect.), perfect teeth.  She also got her hair cut today and is all ready to start school next week!

I got the results back today of my 3 hour glucose tolerance test.  I failed, but barley.  You fail if 2 numbers are over.  She is a bit shocked that my number went up at the 3 hour and she wonders as well as I do, if the 2 hour vial and the 3 hour one got switched.  However, even if they did, I still failed because if you swap 2 and 3 the cutoff would have been the same number as my reading, failing me.  The midwife thinks that since it is such a borderline fail that diet will control it and I won’t need insulin this time.  We will see what the endocrinologist has to say.  Here is what the numbers were.

Fast-   107 (cut off was 95)
1 hour- 173 (cut off was 180)
2 hour- 111 (cut off was 155)
3 hour- 155 (cut off was 140)
