Glucose Tolerance and Insulin Test

About this test

A fasting blood glucose and insulin test is performed after an 8 to 10 hr fast. Then glucose drink (75gm) is given and blood and urine samples taken every 30 mins for 2 hours.

Above-normal blood glucose levels can be used to diagnose type 2 diabetes or high blood glucose during pregnancy (gestational diabetes).

Insulin is the hormone produced by the pancreas that moves glucose from the bloodstream into cells.
