Lois Donovan: For women who do not tolerate an oral glucose load, fasting glucose at a threshold of 85 mg/dL (4.7 mmol/L) at or after 24 weeks gestation is an attractive alternative screen with similar sensitivity to the 50-g oral glucose challenge test (87%) for predicting OGTT results.
The two-step approach was as follows: firstly, a 50 g oral glucose challenge test (GCT) was performed regardless of the fasting status.
Screening for GDM in our hospital was based on a two-step approach.[sup][19] First, a random blood glucose test was performed during the first trimester (≤13 weeks of gestation), and second, the 50-g 1-h oral glucose challenge test (GCT) was performed in the 24–28 weeks of gestation.
All women undergo glucose challenge test (GCT) and glucose tolerance test (GTT).
Usefulness of the 50-g glucose challenge test for screening of patients with gestational diabetes mellitus and an analysis of timing of administration of the test.
The researchers gave subjects either water or sucralose to drink before they consumed a glucose challenge test. The glucose dosage is very similar to what a person might receive as part of a glucose-tolerance test.
The glucose challenge test This test is used to screen for diabetes in pregnancy, which is known as gestational diabetes.
A multicenter, randomized controlled trial (RTC), with a universal GDM screening by a glucose challenge test and a standardized diagnostic OGTT with clearly defined and universally accepted cut-off values for the screening as the gold standard test is needed.
Though controversial (20), most recommend that all pregnant women be screened at 24 to 28 wk gestation with a 50 g glucose challenge test (GCT); those who screen positive are expected to undergo a confirmatory 2 h 75 g or 100 g oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) (4,21).
One prospective randomized study that compared universal screening (using a 50-g 1-hour glucose challenge test) in 1853 women with risk factor screening in 1299 women demonstrated that nearly half of those with GDM had no historical risk factors and would have been missed by risk factor screening in a low-prevalence, mostly Caucasian sample.
