Using Lucozade for glucose tolerance testing – it doesn't make sense!
We've had the following comment submitted to us:
'I had the test this morning and I was appalled as to getting such a drink. They're supposed to measure glucose intake, and I'm ok with drinking a sugary solution, but this has CAFFEINE and a colourant known to do harm – it's written on the bottle – yet how come doctors find it normal to give that to PREGNANT women? I spend all my time avoiding things that can be harmful for my baby, plus, my eldest daughter is ADHD, you can imagine how completely and utterly shocked I am about this. This ISN'T normal.
In other countries you'd just drink a solution of water and glucose, period. Using Lucozade is downright wrong and dangerous.'
What do you think about this viewpoint? Do you agree?
