GLUCOSE SCREENING

Remember not to eat anything after midnight the night before. Eat exactly what is on your menu, nothing more, nothing less (for example, no chocolate in your milk).

MENU

#1

  • 2 eggs (you may salt and pepper to taste)
  • 2 slices of whole wheat toast or one English muffin
  • 1 tablespoon of butter or olive oil
  • 8 oz of milk (anything from whole to skim)
  • 4 oz of real orange juice

OR

#2

  • 2 slices of whole wheat bread or one English muffin
  • 2 Tablespoons of butter or olive oil
  • ½ block of tofu
  • 8 ounces of real orange juice

OR

#3

  • 4 level tablespoons of sugar in water
  • Unsweetened real lemon juice may be added to taste

The glucose screen is extremely time-sensitive. You must ingest the 50 grams of sugar/glucose by whatever means you decide within 15 minutes. Then you must have your blood drawn exactly one hour later to get accurate results.

For example, if your appointment is at 10:00 AM, you should start ingesting your 50 grams of glucose at 9:00 AM, to finish by 9:15 AM.
