Did You Know?
Testing diabetes with the Oral Glucose Tolerance (OGT) test
Though rarely used with the popularity and accuracy of the fasting blood sugar and HbA1C test, the OGT can also be used to diagnose diabetes. Similar to the FBS test, an overnight fast or a fast of six hours is required before drawing a sample of blood. After the fast, a person drinks sugary liquid such as a soda or juice, and blood is drawn two hours later. A result of less than 140 mg/dL is normal. A result of more than 200 mg/dL is indicative of diabetes. Pre-diabetes is considered at a result between 140 and 199 mg/dL.
