English term or phrase: 2-hour postload glucose
is another test used to identify impaired glucose tolerance. This test requires an overnight fast followed by high carbohydrate meal. Creo que puede denominarse en español: test oral de tolerancia a la glucosa. Pero necesito el nombre técnico. Gracias

glucemia a las dos horas después de ingerir glucosa
Explanation:
The name of the test is "prueba de tolerancia a la glucosa". Are you sure about the overnight fast followed by a high carbohydrate meal? I've always understood that the test is carried out by giving the patient a dose of sweetened water after fasting. "Blood sugar levels" or "blood glucose levels" is translated as "glucemia" rather than "glucosa en sangre" in technical texts.

Thanks, the other answer was also right, but I wanted to tell you that I'sure about fasting (I've read it on two books) in this case, although it seems like you can do this test in many different ways. Once again, Thanks for the answer. Loreto
