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.
- - Fasting plasma glucose (FPG): 126 mg/dL or higher
- Plasma glucose 2 hr after 75 g glucose load (2hr PG): 200 mg/dL or higher
- A casual/random plasma glucose (PG) of 200 mg/dL or higher
- Confirmation is not required if the patient presents with either a hyperosmolar or ketotic crisis. The criteria apply to both adult and pediatric patients.
3 True/False questions
Fasting Plasma Glucose (FPG) Assay → Irrespective of last meal or time of day. Glucose result of 200mg/dL or greater in presence of symptoms is presumptive of DM.
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.
-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).
