Testing Methods

Testing for Type 1 Diabetes

1. Blood Sugar Testing: Monitoring blood glucose levels regularly using a glucose meter.

2. Haemoglobin A1C Test: This blood test provides an average of blood sugar levels over the past 2-3 months.

3. Autoantibody Tests: Detecting the presence of autoantibodies that target insulin-producing cells in the pancreas.

Testing for Type 2 Diabetes

1. Fasting Blood Sugar Test: Measures blood glucose levels after an overnight fast.

2. Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT): Involves fasting and then drinking a sugary solution to assess the body's response.

3. Haemoglobin A1C Test: Provides an average of blood sugar levels over the past 2-3 months.

Testing for Gestational Diabetes

1. Glucose Challenge Test (GCT): A preliminary screening test where you drink a sugary solution, and blood is drawn after an hour to measure glucose levels.

2. Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT): If the GCT results are elevated, an OGTT may be conducted. This involves fasting, drinking a more concentrated glucose solution, and multiple blood draws over a few hours.

3. Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM): In some cases, a CGM device may be used to continuously monitor glucose levels over a few days.
