Default Why isn't a finger stick enough...

For the glucose tolerance test??? I apparently failed the glucose challenge test with a blood sugar of 150 mg/dL, so tomorrow I'll have the joy of having blood drawn four times and not eating for 15 hours.

I'm just curious why a full vial is needed to test blood sugar levels.

Send normal blood sugar vibes my way.

Eat oatmeal with splenda in the morning. I had it with the 3 girls but not with this one. I gained the most weight with this one too! I was thinking the oatmeal had something to do withit plain oatmeal with splenda
