“I just found out that I failed my gestational diabetes screening and pretty bummed about that. Surprisingly, it’s hard to find answers to some key questions about this, so wanted to suggest that as a topic for a future session. Here’s some things I think would be helpful to know: 1) does watching your sugar intake before the screen affect the results (or is that even advised?) 2) at what result number would you be considered to have gestational diabetes and they wouldn’t even have you do the second test 3) if you are over (but under whatever limit the answer to #2 is), what are the chances of failing your second test?” – Lily
