3 Multiple choice questions
- - FPG below 110 mg/dL
- 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.
- Irrespective of last meal or time of day. Glucose result of 200mg/dL or greater in presence of symptoms is presumptive of DM.
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.
Impaired glucose tolerance → 2hrs after 75g glucose load. Correlates to values between 140 and 199mg/dL. Value of less than 140mg/dL are considered normal.
-Line 1 is a normal response. What is Line 2 showing?
-Line 1 is normal response. What is line 3 showing?
-Line 1 is normal. What is line 4 showing? →
-Impaired Glucose Tolerance (IGT). Glucose level rises higher than 140 but is less than 200.
-Impaired Fasting Glucose (IFG).
