Present practice: Measurement of fasting glucose values in 2nd trimester of pregnancy, if above 4.8 mmol/l, a Glucose Tolerance Test is performed. (Two-step procedure: 1. Appointment for t...
The aim is to describe the association of glucose tolerance measured with three different tools (continuous glucose measurement system - CGMS, oral glucose tolerance testing - OGTT and opt...
The aim of this study is to offer a 75g postpartum glucose tolerance test to women with minor degrees of glucose intolerance and to assess if these women are significantly different from w...
The study will compare plasma and urine post-prandial metabolomics after fat and glucose oral load according to lifestyle factors.
This project has the following specific purposes: - To develop a clinically usable test to determine the blood glucose level or HbA1c-level, to which the retina is adapted. This w...
It remains unclear whether high plasma glucose levels are associated with venous thromboembolism (VTE). This study investigated the association between fasting plasma glucose (FPG), oral glucose toler...
The oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) is used both in clinical practice and research to assess glucose tolerance. In addition, the OGTT is utilized for surrogate measures of insulin sensitivity and t...
Guidelines recommend early detection of type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM2). The objective of the present study was to evaluate the capacity to identify DM2 in subjects that were screened for DM2 simultane...
The present study was carried out to determine glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity in adult subjects of a west African population. 103 subjects recruited in the town of Cotonou were included in ...
To describe the roles of intra-abdominal fat and its change in the remission of impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) to normal glucose tolerance (NGT).
A test to determine the ability of an individual to maintain HOMEOSTASIS of BLOOD GLUCOSE. It includes measuring blood glucose levels in a fasting state, and at prescribed intervals before and after oral glucose intake (75 or 100 g) or intravenous infusion (0.5 g/kg).
A pathological state in which BLOOD GLUCOSE level is less than approximately 140 mg/100 ml of PLASMA at fasting, and above approximately 200 mg/100 ml plasma at 30-, 60-, or 90-minute during a GLUCOSE TOLERANCE TEST. This condition is seen frequently in DIABETES MELLITUS, but also occurs with other diseases and MALNUTRITION.
Maintenance of a constant blood glucose level by perfusion or infusion with glucose or insulin. It is used for the study of metabolic rates (e.g., in glucose, lipid, amino acid metabolism) at constant glucose concentration.
A glucoside-derived SODIUM-GLUCOSE TRANSPORTER 2 inhibitor that stimulates urinary excretion of glucose by suppressing renal glucose reabsorption. It is used to manage BLOOD GLUCOSE levels in patients with TYPE 2 DIABETES.
A ubiquitously expressed glucose transporter that is important for constitutive, basal GLUCOSE transport. It is predominately expressed in ENDOTHELIAL CELLS and ERYTHROCYTES at the BLOOD-BRAIN BARRIER and is responsible for GLUCOSE entry into the BRAIN.
