3 Multiple choice questions
- 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.
- - 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.
- 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
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.
Two Hour Posprandial Plasma Glucose (2-H PP) → Irrespective of last meal or time of day. Glucose result of 200mg/dL or greater in presence of symptoms is presumptive of DM.
Casual (Random) Plasma Glucose (RPG) Assay → Irrespective of last meal or time of day. Glucose result of 200mg/dL or greater in presence of symptoms is presumptive of DM.
