Glucose Tolerance Blood and Urine Test

Glucose Tolerance Blood and Urine Test

A Glucose Tolerance blood test is used to screen for and help diagnose type 2 diabetes.
Urine sample 2 tests included 2 working days turnaround


A fasting blood glucose test is performed after an 8 to 10 hr fast. Then glucose drink (75gm) is given and blood and urine samples taken every 30 mins for 2 hours.

Above-normal blood glucose levels can be used to diagnose type 2 diabetes or high blood glucose during pregnancy (gestational diabetes). It may also be useful to measure Insulin levels. Insulin is the hormone produced by the pancreas that moves glucose from the bloodstream into cells.
Call and book appointment to have samples taken. Fast 8 - 10 hrs prior to sample being taken. Do not consume alcohol 24 hrs before test or cease prescribed medication without consulting your Doctor.
