Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (75g OGTT)
What is oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT)?
OGTT is a diabetes examination and determine the types of diabetes such as “diabetes”, “normal”, or “borderline”. Take the glucose melted water first, and draw blood four times, 30-min later, 60-min later, 120-min later, and at fasting state.
Who should take the OGTT?
OGTT is recommended to those who were told that they were likely to get diabetes. In particular, those with HbA1c 5.6-6.0% (JDS value), fasting glucose level 110-125mg/dl, or casual blood glucose level 140-199mg/dl. Also, those who are with hypertension, hyperlipidemia, obesity, HbA1c 5.2-5.5% (JDS value) or whose family member has had diabetes are desired to have OGTT.

How to Determine the Type
OGTT determines the diabetes type based on the diagram below, “diabetes”, “normal”, or “borderline”. Also, it calculates an insulinogenic index from the blood glucose level or the insulin value of 30-min later. (Those with this value of less than 0.4 are likely to develop diabetes in the future.)
