The test for diabetes and hypoglycemia (works the opposite way as diabetes but can be a precursor to diabetes) consists of a very sweet orange drink. You must drink all of the drink in a limited amount of time. They will draw your blood at the start of the test and then every hour after for 3-6 hours. You must fast before this test and you aren't allowed to eat anything during the course of the test. It is helpful to bring handheld video games, books, or a laptop with you to keep you entertained. You may feel your heart race during the test or feel very excited. This is the burst of sugar you get from the drink. I have hypoglycemia. When I took the test, I felt really nauseous, tired, my face went pale and tears started streaming down my face. I couldn't control them. I wasn't really crying, because I was upset or sad. I didn't even know I was crying until I felt a teardrop fall on my hand. These are common symptoms of hypoglycemia.
