Background: Childhood obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) have increased proportionately in the last decade. Oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) is recommended for paediatric patients with a BMI >98th centile (NICE, 2014) to identify T2DM or abnormal glucose homeostasis (AGH).Aim: To estimate the proportion of patients with AGH/T2DM seen in a tier 3 obesity service and evaluate the utility of the glycated haemoglobin (HbA1C) in detecting AGH. ...
