What diet should I maintain before taking glucose test ?

Hi I am a 23 year old female and I recently took my glucose reading for my 3rd pregnancy . The results came back 138 but l don t know if it is because I ate late the night before, haven t been drinking too much water, or I am not just eating right. I am due for another follow up glucose reading soon and I am worried, should I do anything to prepare myself before taking the next lab work?

welcome to HealthcareMagic
The sugar of 138 if it is done in fasting then it is slightly high (normal being 90-110).If it is a random sugar done it is fine.Please repeat the sugar after 1 week & do a proper fasting morning sugar & a post lunch sugar to get a better idea.With the report you can consult your doctor she will advise & do the needful for you.
