- 2h PG below 140 mg/dL
Borderline type includes those who are neither diabetic nor normal types, e.g. IFG or IGT.
- Plasma glucose levels measured every 30mins for up to 3hrs. In diabetic, glucose levels start high and rise higher than in a normal patient. Levels also remain higher for a longer period of time.
-Impaired Glucose Tolerance (IGT). Glucose level rises higher than 140 but is less than 200.
-Impaired Fasting Glucose (IFG).
3 True/False questions
Screening for Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM) → No fasting required. 50g glucose load. Between 24-28 weeks gestation. If FPG >125mg/dL then GDM confirmed. If Peak plasma or 2hr glucose value >200mg/dL then GDM confirmed.
What are the 3 criteria that lead to a diagnosis of diabetes? → Performed in place of OGTT (Oral Glucose Tolerance Test). For patients w/ poor absorption of orally administered glucose. [May have a glucose transporter problem in GI tract].
Intravenous Glucose Tolerance Test → 2hrs after 75g glucose load. Correlates to values between 140 and 199mg/dL. Value of less than 140mg/dL are considered normal.
