Modified Glucose Tolerance Test (MGTT) in Klinik Kesihatan Ibu dan Anak

Modified Glucose Tolerance Test (MGTT) or commonly known as cabaran air gula in Malaysia. During my second pregnancy, the nurse requested me to take MGTT. The reason is all pregnant lady above 25 years old must take the test. My first MGTT is on 11 Nov 2021 (week 15). My second MGTT is on 21 Feb 2021 (week 29).

How MGTT is conducted in Klinik Kesihatan Ibu dan Anak?

  2. A MGTT appointment letter will be issued to pregnant mother

Reflection:

Seriously, I really don’t like the taste of glucose after fasting. It is just too sweet and horrible. My result before MGTT is 4.3. Result after MGTT is 7.7. If more than 7.8, it mean you may have diabetes. Luckily, I am at the borderline. However, I still observe my diet. Less carbohydrate or sweet food in my diet.
