GlucoTest 75 g 200 ml for Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT)
What is Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT)?
This test measures body’s ability to metabolize glucose in patients who are suspected to have diabetes. Basically, diabetes is disorder of metabolism caused by insufficient level or absence of insulin in blood. Most of food we eat is broken down into glucose, the form of sugar in blood. Glucose is the main source of fuel for the body. After food digestion glucose passes into bloodstream where it is used by cells for growth and energy. Insulin must be present to enable glucose getting into cells.
Insulin is a hormone produced by pancreas every time we eat. In people with diabetes however pancreas either produces little or no insulin, or the cells do not respond appropriately to the insulin that is produced. So, glucose level grows up in blood and it overflows into urine.
Three main types of diabetes are:
- Type 1 diabetes or diabetes mellitus
- Type 2 diabetes
- Gestational diabetes
Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT) is one of the tools to diagnose diabetes. Test should be carried out by specialized personal early in the morning and after 12 hours fasting. In this condition patient should drink solution containing known amount of glucose in a period no longer than 5 minutes. The patient’s blood is tested before drinking glucose solution and again after 2 hours.
