PubH 6470, Fall 2011 1 Homework 2: due Tuesday, 27 September 1. Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT). The OGTT is a test given to people at risk of diabetes. The subject arrives in the morning without having eaten and is given a certain amount of food at the start of the test (time 0). Blood samples are taken after immediately before the food, and after 30, 60, 90 and 120 minutes to measure blood sugar. The time 0 measurement is a fasting blood sugar. According to their OGTT results, patients are classified in one of these categories, as defined in the chart below: • Normal glucose tolerance (NGT) • Normal glucose tolerance with impaired fasting glucose (NGT-IFG) • Normal glucose tolerance - indeterminate (NGT-Indt) • Impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) • Impaired glucose tolerance with impaired fasting glucose (IGT-IFG) • Cystic fibroses related diabetes, CFRD, without fasting hypoglycemia (CFRD-no FH) • CFRD without fasting hypoglycemia but with impaired fasting glucose (CFRD-IFG) • CFRD with fasting hypoglycemia (CFRD-FH) Category ZERO MIN 120 MIN 30-60-90 MIN Normal GT < 100 < 140

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
