Q&A: Exercising Before a Glucose Test

Question

“Hi Vanessa!  I have a question about the gestational diabetes 1 hour test. I was hoping you could help provide some input.  I have my screening coming up, and I typically work out in the mornings.  I know they told me it shouldn’t matter if I eat or not beforehand (as long as it’s not a pure sugar breakfast), but would working out affect the results?  Typically working out lowers your blood sugar, so I’m worried my fasting blood glucose will be low, but drinking the drink will spike me up high. Any insight?” – Erin
