The American Diabetes Association (ADA) recommends screening for Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM) between 24–28 weeks. To screen for GDM, you will take an initial glucose load test for which you will need to consume a 50-gram glucose beverage an hour prior to a plasma glucose test. The plasma glucose test is performed by appointment at one of Labcorp’s Patient Service Centers or your physician’s office. Order your glucose beverage today so that it arrives in time for your scheduled glucose load test appointment.
Gestational Diabetes affects 7% of pregnant women. Uncontrolled GDM poses risks including, but not limited to, preterm birth, fetal anomalies, preeclampsia, macrosomia, neonatal hypoglycemia, neonatal hyperbilirubinemia and a higher risk of developing diabetes post-partum1. Please consult with your healthcare provider if you will be taking the 50-gram, 75-gram or 100-gram glucose test as they have different requirements.
