What is this test?

Glucose Tolerance Test Pregnancy BLOOD is done to check the glucose levels in the blood of pregnant women for assessing the risk factors related to gestational diabetes. This test is usually performed to know how an individual is processing the sugar in the body, as they are known to be altered during pregnancy.

What are Glucose tolerance and Gestational diabetes?

The ability of the body to process/absorb sugars is known as glucose tolerance. Increased tolerance to glucose may lead to an increase in blood glucose levels. The increased blood glucose levels may lead to the symptoms of diabetes like excessive thirst, frequent urination, dizziness, etc

The period of development of the embryo/fetus in mother is called the gestational period and the process is called gestation. Increased blood glucose levels during the period of pregnancy or gestation are called gestational diabetes. This usually develops during the period of pregnancy and may disappear after childbirth. Gestational diabetes may occur during the 2nd and 3rd trimesters (24-28 weeks) of pregnancy. Individuals with gestational diabetes may or may not develop type -2 diabetes in the future.

Why this test is performed?

The doctor may ask you to undergo this test if the doctor suspects that the individual may be suffering from conditions such as diabetes etc. If symptoms like dizziness, increased thirst, frequent urination, dry mouth, etc are seen in an individual, then the doctor may recommend doing this test. When an individual is diagnosed with diabetes, obesity, or a previous history of gestational diabetes, visits hospital for a general check-up, the doctor may ask you to undergo the Glucose tolerance pregnancy test Blood which gives a better status of the pregnancy condition. Mostly, this test is done along with other diagnostic tests to confirm the diagnosis.

Precautions:

Report the use of any medicines or diets to your doctor as they may interfere with your test results. Overnight fasting may make an individual feel dizzy, so it is recommended to have a caretaker along with the individual.
