PBS Act 2.1.1 GTT PreLab Glucose Tolerance Test

Glucose tolerance test
The glucose tolerance test is a lab test to check how your body breaks down sugar.  The most common glucose tolerance test is the oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT).
Before the test begins, a sample of blood will be taken.   You will then be asked to drink a liquid containing a certain amount of glucose (usually 75 grams). Your blood will be taken again every 30 to 60 minutes after you drink the solution.
The test takes up to 3 hours.
