What is Oral Glucose Tolerance Test?
The glucose tolerance test, also known as the oral glucose tolerance test, measures your body's response to sugar (glucose). The glucose tolerance test can be used to screen for type 2 diabetes. More commonly, a modified version of the glucose tolerance test is used to diagnose gestational diabetes — a type of diabetes that develops during pregnancy.The glucose tolerance test identifies abnormalities in the way your body handles glucose after a meal — often before your fasting blood glucose level becomes abnormal.
Are there any risks involved with Oral Glucose Tolerance Test?
The only risks associated with obtaining a blood sample are slight. After your blood is drawn, you may experience bruising or bleeding. You may also feel dizzy or light-headed. In some cases, infection after your procedure is possible if care is not taken. Overall the risks can be avoided with proper care.
How do I prepare for OGT Test?
Food and medications before OGT Test : It's important to eat and drink normally in the days leading up to the glucose tolerance test. Let your doctor know if you're ill or taking any medications, as these factors can affect the results of your test. Before the procedure : For eight hours before the test, you won't be able to eat or drink anything. You might want to fast overnight and schedule the test for early the following morning. During the procedure : The glucose tolerance test is done in several steps. When you arrive at your doctor's office or lab, a member of your health care team will take a sample of blood from a vein in your arm. This blood sample will be used to measure your fasting blood glucose level. After the glucose tolerance test : You can return to your usual activities immediately.
What is OGT Test for Type-2 Diabetes?
If you're being tested for type 2 diabetes: • You'll drink about 8 ounces (237 milliliters) of a syrupy glucose solution containing 2.6 ounces (75 grams) of sugar • Two hours later, your blood glucose level will be measured again. If you're being tested for type 2 diabetes, two hours after drinking the glucose solution: • A normal blood glucose level is lower than 140 mg/dL (7.8 mmol/L). • A blood glucose level between 140 and 199 mg/dL (7.8 and 11 mmol/L) is considered impaired glucose tolerance, or prediabetes. If you have prediabetes, you're at risk of eventually developing type 2 diabetes. You're also at risk of developing heart disease, even if you don't develop diabetes. • A blood glucose level of 200 mg/dL (11.1 mmol/L) or higher may indicate diabetes. If the results of your glucose tolerance test indicate type 2 diabetes, your doctor may repeat the test on another day or use another blood test to confirm the diagnosis. Various factors can affect the accuracy of the glucose tolerance test, including illness, activity level and certain medications.
