  2. 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].
  3. Plasma glucose measured 2hrs after 75g glucose load. Value greater than or equal to 200mg/dL indicative of DM if confirmed on another day by either an elevated FPG (above 126) or RPG value (200) or elevated glycosylated hemoglobin A1c.

3 True/False questions

  1. Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT)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.


  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. 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.
