Description

Glucose is the most important of the sugars, affecting carbohydrate metabolism. The glucose load test (10 hours after the last meal) and the daily glycemic profile are tests that reflect the efficiency of sugar metabolism. The kidneys excrete sugar only after exceeding the so-called renal threshold, i.e. when the concentration in urine exceeds 180mg%.

Importance of the test: assessment of carbohydrate metabolism, diagnosis and evaluation of the effectiveness of diabetes treatment. Abnormal values of glucose: in abnormal, excessive nutrition, family tendencies, in diabetes, in pancreatic diseases, in infections, injuries, in myocardial infarction, in pregnancy, in stress.
