(GTT)Glucose Tolerance Test

This is a blood test performed to diagnose diabetes, or gestational diabetes. A blood test is taken early in the morning, after fasting from the night before. You would then drink a glucose drink, that we will give you, in the surgery, and you would have a further blood test performed 1 hour after the initial blood test, and a further blood test an hour after that, if you are pregnant.

Test results are usually back within 5 working days.

Please inform the reception staff that you require this blood test as we need to allocate two appointment slots for you.

We look forward to being of help to you.
