Glucose Tolerance Testing

Glucose Tolerance Test – SHORT – 2 tests

The short Glucose Tolerance Test costs £200.00

The short version is often performed in pregnancy to diagnose gestational diabetes and often as a primary GTT for the general population.

This is a test which checks how well the body processes sugar (glucose).  It involves comparing the levels of glucose in the blood, before and after drinking a sugary drink.

The results of this test can help doctors detect for diabetes mellitus, gestational diabetes, or pre-diabetes (impaired glucose tolerance).

You would need to have two blood tests, two hours apart.

The first blood test would be early in the morning after you have fasted overnight ( 8 hours ).  The second blood test would be two hours later after you have had a sugary drink. (You can sit at MUMS after the sugary drink and not rush about, as this will affect the result).

The two samples would then be sent to our laboratory for analysis.  The results will be available the following day.

We recommend you have this test with our Private GP as the results will need interpreting and explaining to you which is free of charge if you choose to have the test with a GP which includes a consultation. If you choose to have the test with a phlebotomist, you will need to have a consultation with the GP to have the results explained to you when they are reported back (if they are abnormal).

You can have this short test with one of our phlebotomists. This costs £25.00 but does not include interpretation of the results. Therefore, we recommend a GP Consultation in the first instance so that your results are explained to you free of charge.

Glucose Tolerance Test – FULL – 3 tests.

The full Glucose Tolerance Test costs £300.00

This test is the same as the above but there are 3 tests – Prior to the drink, 60 mins after the drink and then again 2 hours after the drink.

Like the SHORT GTT – this FULL GTT begins with an initial blood test, followed by a glucose drink, followed by a blood test after 60 mins and then again 2 hours later.

This is the most requested glucose tolerance test often referred to as OGTT

You need to plan to be at MUMS for 2 hours.

At MUMS our Health Care Assistants, Nurses, and Private GPs – test for diabetes mellitus, gestational diabetes, or impaired glucose tolerance with a Glucose tolerance test.

Our GP’s and phlebotomists perform a wide range of blood tests. A GP consultation costs £100

A Phlebotomy appointment costs £25.00.

You can choose to have a Glucose Tolerance Test with our GPs or Phlebotomists. You will need a payable consultation to have the results explained to you if you choose a Nurse or Phlebotomist in which to have either SHORT or FULL GTT.

The results of this test can help doctors detect for diabetes mellitus, gestational diabetes, or pre-diabetes (impaired glucose tolerance).
