Q. What Do my Oral Glucose Tolerance Test Results Mean? I had an Oral Glucose Tolerance Test last week. I am 26 weeks pregnant. The results I got are 132 mg/dL. What does this mean?

A. If your blood glucose level was greater than 130 mg/dL, your provider will likely recommend you take another diabetes screening test that requires you to fast (not eat anything) before the test. During this second test, called the 100-gram oral glucose tolerance test, your blood glucose level will be tested four times during a three-hour period after drinking the cola-like drink. If two out of the four blood tests are abnormal, you are considered to have gestational diabetes.

Borrowing from the plant ecology literature (Grime 1979), we consider the dominant a superior "competitor" because of its ability to overgrow the subordinate, a subordinate with greater benthic ability a "stress tolerator," and a subordinate with greater pelagic ability a "ruderal." Ruderal or stress-tolerant traits imply that the subordinate's persistence curve is lower than that of the dominant for some level of disturbance: [P.sub.2]([Alpha]) [less than] [P.sub.1]([Alpha]).
