From Honolulu, Hawaii, USA:

I am 37 years old, 29 weeks pregnant, and I have just been told that my one-hour glucose test was "borderline". Now I have to do a three to four hour test. I am concerned about the health of my unborn child. What should I do?


Take the three-hour test as scheduled. If the one-hour test was only mildly elevated, than it is very likely the 3 hour test will be fine. At most, you may have to be on a special diet.
