GTT (Glucose Tolerance Test)
This four-page handout helps women who are pregnant prepare for a glucose tolerance test (GTT), which checks for diabetes. It explains that the GTT is a screening test given during pregnancy that checks how the mother's body uses glucose (sugar). It includes check boxes where a provider can indicate whether this will be a one, three, four, or five hour test. The document contains guidelines to help the patient prepare, and provides a brief explanation of what will happen during the test, and after.
