Activity Review Guide 2.1.1 Diagnosing DiabetesDiabetesis a metabolic disease in which the body’s inability to produce any or enough insulin causes elevated levels ofglucose in the blood.Glucose Tolerance Testing (GTT)-monitors the amount of sugar in the liquid portion of blood called plasma, a set timeperiod and gives doctors information as to how the body utilizes sugar. It is used to only indicate whether or not aperson has diabetes, but it cannot be used to determine whether a person has Type 1 or Type 2. When a person is doingthe Glucose Tolerance Testing the patient is given a large amount of sugar after they have not eaten for a certainamount of time. Then the person is running the test examines how the patient’s body responds to the sugar by watchingthe glucose levels in the blood. If the glucose levels stay high most of the time than the person is mostly has diabetes.Insulin Level Testing-To determine whether a patient has Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes, you need to test the level of insulinin the patient’s blood.To figure out if a person is diabeticthey would have a prolonged rise in blood glucose levels. A lack of insulin in theblood at each period would indicate that she is a Type 1 diabetic, thus the person is not producing insulin and theirglucose levels would remain elevated over the time period. Now if the insulin test reveals a normal level of insulin in theblood in response to increased levels of glucose, but they have a prolonged rise in blood glucose levels would indicatethey have Type 2 Diabetes. Now if the person has a brief rise in glucose levels, but stays within the range of normal theperson would be seen as not diabetic, but could be considered pre-diabetic.
