Glucose Tolerance Test
This is a standard test in the diagnosis and management of Type 2 diabetes.The OGTT involves placing an IV. This process involves inserting a thin tube, called a cannula, into a vein. This allows for multiple blood draws without the need for multiple needles.There will be 7 blood draws over the course of 3 hours.The blood draws take place before consuming a sugary drink and after. This is to get a baseline and then to measure the changes, if any, that occur.There will be an OGTT at visits 2,5 & 6.
