~Long Morning With Needles~

Jacksonville, Florida
December 5, 2015 7:15am CST
Once again I'm getting the diabetes test done, this time the 3 hour one. I am finally getting it done. I put it off for a while but today is the day. I already drank the nasty drink and I have been fasting since midnight. I am tired and I'm not feeling the greatest. They have to draw blood 4 times. =( I'm ready to eat and go to sleep! I hope your morning is going better than mine!

A test because you have it, or to see if you have it, or to measure blood sugar over a period, or?

@PhredWreck It is to see if I have diabetes while pregnant. It is a miserable test, but now it is over thank God.

@LovingMyBabies You are pregnant now? Congratulations. Now I can understand the process.... I have heard about the diabetes tests from my friends. I heard about the nasty drink. Hopefully your blood sugar level is normal.

This is important for your health and for the baby but I know it is miserable. I hope you get some positive answers.

@GardenGerty It was miserable but I know I had to do it which is why I did. I am glad to be home and finished with the test.

When I looked at the title, I thought you were mentioning the knitting needles. The needles you have sound scary to me. Hope the test result is good, and you don't need to do such test again.

Wow, that sounds awful. Just seeing the word "needle" is enough to make me feel the pain. I cannot imagine how life is like to have such tests done so many times a year. I hope that you have good results, and do not have to go to such tests for a long time.

@scheng1 It is really awful. I am feeling absolutely drained now. I am glad it is over though.

I may soon have to have this done too. I am 'pre-diabetic' and the doc told me that the next time my glucose is 22 or more I will be termed as diabetic. I hate the thought of it. I will be going to the doc for my annual check up in February or March. Good luck! Hope all goes well for you. I hate test and being messed with for blood tests.

I really am glad you finally got this test done. even though the process sucked, which we both know. I hope the results were on the positive side of things

I guess there are different tests for different types of diabetes. I never has to drink a horrible drink. Just a fasting blood sugar test. Take care of that now before it turns into full blown diabetes.

Someone I work with is having this done tomorrow, well I think it is the same, a glucose tolerance test. I hope the results are good for you x

That is one rough way to start a morning, but it's for the best! You don't want to end up in the cross hairs of diabetes raging havoc on your system.
