Oral Glucose Tolerance Testing

OCTRI research nurses are able to perform oral glucose tolerance testing (OGTT). The nursing staff has a depth of experience with these measures that benefits investigators and study participants. Meal tolerance testing procedures require an IV and multiple sample collection overa  few hours. 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 intravenous glucose tolerance testing (IVGTT) and meal tolerance testing (MTT).
