Can I Take Synthroid Before A Glucose Tolerance Test
Is it true that they take up to 2 blood samples during the glucose tolerance test. Would I be in danger of losing too much blood?

There may be a strong genetic predisposition to addiction, some studies suggesting that 1 of 10 people will become dependent on alcohol or some ...Read more

What are the normal values for serum insulin in glucose tolerance test (75g) after 60 and 120 minutes?
Serum insulin: Levels are very unreliable and of almost no use in a GTT. The labs don't measure them accurately either.
