OK to do glucose tolerance test while on antibiotics?

This might be a stupid question, but is it okay to take the glucose tolerance test while I have bronchitis and am taking antibiotics? I am supposed to fast, too.

  • I was told that being sick will increase your sugar numbers.  I was sick when I had to mine.  The tech didnt say anything to me.  My fasting number was 98 and they wanted it to be 95I believe.  When I went to my session with the GD nurse she asked me if I had been sick when I had all of my blood work done - that it could elevate your numbers.  May want to check with your office to be sure.

  • Thank you for the answer! That is good to know. I will talk to my OB before I do the test.
