    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Failed One Hour Glucose Test

    Today I went in for my one hour glucose test ( didn't eat for the reccomended time and only drank water) and I just got a call saying I failed it and that they're mailing me a 3 day diet to go by and on the 4th day I have to go in for a 3 hour test.

    I'm also at the peak of having a pretty bad cold and I was actually wondering if that could have caused me to fail the test?

    From what I understand being sick can cause your blood sugars to be high. At least that is what my SIL, who's a nurse, told me. Talk to your doctor about the fact that you are feeling sick.
