Why 75 Grams - Glucose test?


75 GRAMS GLUCOSE TEST is a short version of the oral glucose challenge test (OGTT) that measures the body’s response to glucose. This test is usually performed at any time of the day (preferably on an empty stomach may be advised by clinician only if required to monitor in high-risk cases) during pregnancy (this test is recommended between 24 and 28th week of pregnancy to women who have a family history of diabetes in any form and/or previous gestational diabetes and in obese women) and test result reading is taken after one hour to screen for gestational diabetes. Abnormal results indicate pre-existing type-2 diabetes that was not previously recognized. Without careful management of gestational diabetes in uncontrolled diabetes during gestation may lead to high-risk pregnancy complications such as pre-eclampsia or excess fetal growth and might increase the risk of birth injuries or C-section, where both the lives of mother and fetus are at risk. Furthermore, the complications may continue for the long term or for life if uncontrolled and hence this short version of the OGTT test is of immense importance.
