What does Glucose Challenge Evaluate?

This test evaluates the concentration of glucose in the blood sugar levels.

Glucose is a source of the energy in your body and also for your nervous system. Carbohydrates which are consumed by foods break down in glucose form. Your intestines absorb the glucose and transport it to the various organs in your blood.

The cells of these organs utilize it for energy production and some are stored for later use as glycogen in the liver. After having a meal, the sugar level gets increased in your blood as insulin is released to minimize the level of sugar until it gets normal.

The GCT measures the level of glucose in your blood. It shows how much your body is able to utilize or store glucose. If there is excess sugar in your blood, it means that your body is not utilizing it.
