Oral Glucose Tolerance Testing (oGTT)

This test helps unmask problems with impaired glucose tolerance and gestational diabetes that is a common problem in pregnancy which may lead to specific problems with the baby’s growth and development, e.g. large for gestational age babies, preterm labor, problems during delivery and infant hypoglycemia after birth.

This test can be performed at any time, but routinely it is offered in the 22-26 week of pregnancy.
