Two-hour oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT)

ADC’s Laboratory has eliminated the time draws between the fasting and two-hour states (1/2 hour, 1 hour and 1½ hour) during a two-hour oral glucose tolerance test.

This means two-hour oral glucose tolerance test will no longer collect five specimens — it will collect specimens at fasting and two hours post-dose.

According to the American Diabetes Association and the World Health Organization, the results of the test can be used to help evaluate a patient for diabetes.
