Carbohydrate Metabolism Panel

Accurate Diagnosis, Caring Treatment

Carbohydrate Metabolism Panel

The carbohydrate metabolism panel, also known as the oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT), is an important laboratory test that assesses the state of carbohydrate metabolism. It can help in the early detection of gestational diabetes, asymptomatic diabetes, and its precursor state, impaired glucose tolerance.

Procedure of the Test

Preparations: For three days before the test, it is recommended to consume meals containing at least 150 g of carbohydrates daily. The test should be done on an empty stomach, in the morning hours.

Blood Sugar Check: At the beginning of the test, a fingertip blood sugar check is performed. If the value is below 7.00 mmol/l, the test continues.

Glucose Intake: The patient must consume a sweet solution containing 75 g of glucose.

Second Blood Draw: 120 minutes after the glucose intake, another blood draw is performed to determine glucose tolerance.

What Do the Results Mean?

Normal Glucose Tolerance: If the 120-minute value returns to around the fasting level.

Impaired Glucose Tolerance: If the 120-minute value is between 7.8-11.0 mmol/l.

Diabetes: If the 120-minute value is above 11.0 mmol/l.

How Much Does It Cost?

The test cost: 8,000 HUF
