Insulin Tolerance Test (ITT) is a procedure commonly done by Endocrine Specialist Nurse in endocrine department. We look at over 120 ITT results done in 2 endocrine centres using Insulin Actrapid 0.15 UNITS/kg and 0.10 UNITS/kg dose plotting the glucose levels at 30, 45 and 60 min. We also look at peak GH and peak cortisol on each of these groups.
Aims: We wanted to know how many percentage of patients achieving hypoglycaemia below 0.5 mmol/l, 0.51.0 mmol/l, 1.11.5 mmol/l, 1.62.0 mmol/l and above 2.0 mmol/l. We also look at percentage of peak GH response achieving over 9 microgram/l, between 89 microgram/l and below 8 microgram/l. In the peak cortisol response, we looked at results over 550 nmol/l; 500550 nmol/l; 450500 nmol/l; 400450 nmol/l and below 400 nmol/l. Within these data, we also look at a small groups of results for patients using 0.15 UNITS/kg as repeat dose and repeat ITT using the lower dose to compare if these are difference in these markers.
Summary: We are unable to draw summary at the moment as well still got 30 data to go through.
