Prevalence of biochemical hypoglycaemia in everyday practice

Zabuliene Lina , Pauliukiene Birute , Audrone Bagdziuniene Airida , Urboniene Jurgita

Oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) is the main tool in population based screening for type 2 diabetes mellitus. Sometimes OGTT results are showing asymptomatic lowering of post-load blood glucose. Post-load plasma glucose (2hPG) level 3.9 mmol/l (70 mg/dl) and lower shows biochemical hypoglycaemia. Biochemical hypoglycaemia might be observed among individuals with abnormal glucose tolerance and in healthy population. The objective of the investigation was to assess a prevalenc...
