A glucose tolerance test measures the body's response to glucose. It is used to screen for type 2 diabetes. This test identifies abnormalities in how your body handles glucose after a meal. Glucose is used by the body to supply energy to the cells. The food you eat is broken down by your body into glucose. A hormone called insulin helps bring the glucose from your bloodstream into your body's cells. When the pancreas can't produce enough insulin, you may need insulin injections to regulate and process glucose in the body. If your body can't produce enough insulin, it will increase blood glucose levels. High blood glucose can be a sign of diabetes or pre-diabetes.
