Glucose Tolerance Test

What is the Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT)?

The oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) measures the ability of the body to metabolize glucose (sugar) and includes clearing it from the bloodstream. This test involves the fasting period.  A person needs to drink a syrup solution before a blood sample. It is also known as the glucose tolerance test.

Drinking syrup solution determines the body's ability to metabolize glucose.

OGTT is used to diagnose diabetes, gestational diabetes, and prediabetes.

 

OGTT in Pakistan is a simple routine test that helps medical practitioners to get to know the overall health of an individual.

Why is an Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT) Conducted?

This test is taken to determine how your body can manage glucose after a meal. Your body uses glucose (produced by breaking down carbohydrates in foods) for energy, and the rest is stored for later use.

Hormones like insulin and glucagon control the glucose level in our blood. Too much glucose means that the pancreas secretes insulin and allows cells to absorb and store glucose.

When the body has too little, the pancreas releases glucagon which results in the discharge of stored glucose back into the bloodstream.

It is a routine test that is conducted on a daily basis in the labs of Lahore, Karachi, Multan, Rawalpindi, Islamabad, and other major cities.
