KLT - July 6

I'm just totally confused. Should I load up on carbs for the 3 hour test or not? I'm reading mixed answers from different posts...here and there. Some are saying I should load up to shock the system, others are saying to just eat as I normally do to ensure getting "my" normal results. What gives? I'm lost....

KLT, I was a little confused on the diet as well. It appeared most info I found encouraged eating carbs three days prior. I went by this site www.gentlebirth.org/archives/gttDiet.html it basically has you eat normally and add some carbs to your diet (i.e. rice and a banana one day, pasta and an apple the next, etc.) I just did my 3 hr. today and I'm just relieved it's over. I hope they have my results tomorrow and they are negative. Good luck! Cattac, I couldn't find anything on the FBS for diet. It only required fasting. Good luck to you as well!
