Statistical analysis identified five factors that--by themselves--led to higher risk of newly detected prediabetes or diabetes during the study: older age, higher initial fasting glucose level, higher initial glucose on the oral glucose tolerance test, 12-month abdominal fat gain, and 2-to-4-year abdominal fat gain (Figure 1).
A glucose tolerance test was performed on the patients and the results of fasting plasma glucose and glucose tolerance test (GTT) were interpreted according to the diagnostic criteria for diagnosis of diabetes (Box).16
It would be reasonable to do a glucose tolerance test before giving the patient a diagnosis."
It can rise up to 50-130 [micro]U/mL during glucose tolerance test and return to 30 [micro]U/mL after 2 hours.
All women undergo glucose challenge test (GCT) and glucose tolerance test (GTT).
Although the American Diabetes Association states that an [HbA.sub.1c] greater than 6.5 is diagnostic of diabetes, there are occasional patients in the 6.5 to 7 range who are not diabetic and these people also should have a glucose tolerance test. Anyone with an [HbA.sub.1c] of 7 or greater should be considered diabetic without additional testing.
Guidelines issued in 2007 by the European Society of Cardiology and the European Association for the Study of Diabetes recommended that physicians routinely perform an oral glucose tolerance test following an MI in patients who had not previously been diagnosed with diabetes (Eur.
The increased binding affinity demonstrated by DM-204 has led to a significant improvement in the use of glucose over the first-generation antibody as measured by an in vivo Type 2 diabetes oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT).
The most common ones are the fasting blood sugar, hemoglobin A1C, and glucose tolerance test. Fasting blood sugar is a blood test that measures the blood glucose after an 8-12 hour fast.
"These include a fasting plasma glucose (FPG) test [greater than or equal to]126 mg/dl; symptoms such as increased urination and unexplained weight loss plus an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) of [greater than or equal to]200 mg/dl; an OGTT of [greater than or equal to]200 mg/dl two hours after a 75-gram glucose load; and an A1C of [greater than or equal to]6.5 percent." (See "Tests for Diagnosing Prediabetes and Diabetes" for more information about these tests.)
All 399 participants had a normal glucose tolerance test 10 - 12 weeks into pregnancy, but were considered high risk because of their body mass index (at least 25), history (macrosomia or gestational diabetes in a previous pregnancy), or family history.
The A1C would join two previous diagnostic tests for diabetes, FPG (fasting plasma glucose) and the OGTT (oral glucose tolerance test), both of which require overnight fasting.
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).
