|Spanish term or phrase: sobrecarga (medical context)|
|En una muestra de 18 pacientes se han determinado los valores de glucemia y de insulinemia durante la sobrecarga oral de 100 g de glucosa, en los tiempos 0,30,60,90 y 120 min del OGTT.|
A sample of 18 patients was used to determine glycemia and insulinemia values during the oral "SOBRECARGA" of 100g of glucose, at times 0, 30, 60, 90 and 120 minutes of the OGTT.
Note: OGTT = Oral Glucose Tolerance test
This is a text about obesity/diabetes. I don't know how to translate this word, the dictionary entries don't seem quite right somehow, and I suspect there is a medical term. Thanks in advance to any doctors that might be able to throw some light on this.
This IS the glucose tolerance test. You're given an amount of glucose (overnight) and tested the next morning to see how your body metabolizes it and how long it takes you to absorb it. It's essentially an "overdosing", but the amount is really harmless, even if you have diabetes. The purpose is to see the variation that shows up between healthy patients and diabetics.

Also known as the glucose load test
Plasma glucose of 200 mg/dL [11.1 mmol/L] or greater at 2 hours following a 75-gram glucose load.
At least one of the above criteria must be met on more than one occasion, and the third method (2-hour plasma glucose after oral glucose challenge) is not recommended for routine clinical use.
