What is Blood Sugar After 50 Gram Glucose Test?

The glucose challenge test (GCT), commonly known as the one-hour glucose tolerance test, is a test that determines how your body reacts to sweets (glucose). This test is used to check for gestational diabetes (diabetes that develops during pregnancy). Suppose you're at high risk of gestational diabetes owing to obesity, a personal history of gestational diabetes, or a family history of diabetes. A blood sugar level of 140 mg/dL or greater could mean you're pregnant. In that case, GCT can be done as early as your first prenatal appointment.

The majority of pregnant mothers with gestational diabetes have healthy kids. However, suppose gestational diabetes is not managed correctly.
