IVGTT: Intravenous Glucose Tolerance Testing

OCTRI research nurses are able to perform intravenous glucose tolerance testing measures (IVGTT). The nursing staff has a depth of experience with these measures that benefits investigators and study participants. IVGTT procedures require an IV and multiple sample collection, and OCTRI research nurses are uniquely qualified to perform these tests using best practices for participant safety and comfort.

Research nurses are able to handle specimens that require special attention for data integrity. This is coordinated by our research staff for the best outcomes.

OCTRI can also conduct oral glucose tolerance testing (OGTT) and meal tolerance testing (MTT).
