Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT) Test

Measures the amount of sugar in the blood (glycemia). An examination required in case diabetes is suspected. Helps diagnosing gestational diabetes in pregnant women (between the 24th and the 28th week of pregnancy).
Testing moment
Upon the very first visit, this medical test is performed after a 12 hour fasting. If the glucose result under fasting conditions is outside the normal values, then the physician may prescribe a simplified one-hour oral glucose tolerance test, which does not call for any fasting, or a 2-hour test, provided a 12-hour prior fasting has been observed.
Low values causes
  • Hypoglycemia
High values causes
  • Gestational diabetes
  • Diabetes
  • Intolerance to glucose

Please comply with the sampling nurse’s instructions before taking the test.
