The glucose tolerance test measures your body's response to sugar (glucose) and it's used to screen for type 2 diabetes.
The purpose of the ENGINE trial was a real-world comparison of Scout DS to fasting plasma glucose (FPG) and HbA1c (glycated hemoglobin) for type 2 diabetes screening, using a 2-hour oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) as the reference standard.
Sleep duration was linearly correlated with 90-minute oral glucose tolerance test results (r = -0.
The authors measured glucose and insulin levels in fasting blood and in blood collected during oral glucose tolerance tests to evaluate the diabetogenic effects of the treatment.
Diagnostic 100-g oral glucose tolerance test (on separate day, after overnight fast) in women who meet or exceed chosen threshold on 50-g screening (140 mg/dL or more, or 130 mg/dL or more for higher sensitivity).
Researchers from Children's Mercy Hospital and Clinics found that performing two tests - both the recommended hemoglobin A1C test and an oral glucose tolerance test - could dramatically reduce the risk of delayed diagnosis in overweight children.
In the United States, nearly 13 percent of adults age 20 and older have diabetes, but 40 percent of them have not been diagnosed, according to epidemiologists from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), whose study includes newly available data from an Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT).
The first protocol was to continue the previously recommended 50-g glucose challenge test with a diagnostic 3-h 100-g oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) if the glucose concentration was increased at 1 h after the 50-g load.
