The blood specimen is drawn from the cubital vein and/ or finger-prick capillary blood at zero time (baseline) before glucose administration and then at every half an hour for two hours depending upon the protocol of the physician and the levels of urine and blood glucose and/or levels of insulin are measured and the results are plotted in a graph).
