I have my GTT tomorrow morning, so I know I have to drink 288ml of Lucozade (at 8.30 in the morning - yuck)! but am I then allowed to eat my breakfast or am I meant to be fasting? I can't remember and forgot to ask! Was hoping I could drop A at my Mum's then stop for a cup of tea but not sure if I can have anything?

No, you shouldn't have anything else.

Nope, nothing! Do you not need to have the lucozade in the hospital? I had to get blood taken, drink the lucozade, wait however long it was then more bloods

I had to fast from 9pm the night before, then go to hospital for 8am on day of GTT. They did a blood test, then gave me the drink, then made me stay sitting there for about three hours before then doing the second blood test. I wasn't allowed to do anything after the initial blood test and drink as it would skew the results.

Same here. Fasted from 9pm night before, only water allowed, into hospital at 8.30 where they took bloods, they gave me the lucozade to drink, another blood test at hosp later, could then eat.

Thanks all, no I've not got to have any pre-lucozade bloods just have to drink it one hour before then go for blood test (and whooping cough jab). I'll be starving by 10am!! I'm usually on my second breakfast by then

I had to fast from 9pm. Bloods at 9am, drink the Lucozade then more bloods 2-3 hrs later I think x

Yep. Don't have anything except your lucozade. Will skew your results and you'll need to do it again. It's not that bad. Great excuse to sit with your feet up for a couple of hours. I was allowed home so went and had a nap x

I'm sure I was given a sandwich with my Lucozade actually

The RAH make you have a sandwich after your 2nd blood test before you leave LR, doubt you'd have been given one during it!

That must be what I'm thinking!
