  3. 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.

3 True/False questions

  1. Fasting Plasma Glucose (FPG) AssayIrrespective of last meal or time of day. Glucose result of 200mg/dL or greater in presence of symptoms is presumptive of DM.


  2. What are normal FPG and 2hr Postprandial after 75g glucose challenge?- 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.


  3. Casual (Random) Plasma Glucose (RPG) AssayFast for at least 8hrs. FPG result less than 110 mg/dL is normal, between 110 and 125 mg/dL imply impaired fasting glucose (IFG), values greater than or equal to 126 mg/dL indicate DM.
