French term or phrase: PG 2.5%
Hi,

The patient is hospitalized for GI bleeds in a context of acute myeloblastic leukemia and myelodysplasia.
During the hospitalization their is a paradoxal hypernatremia with no accompanying hyperglycemia even though he is receiving "2 L de PG 2,5% quotidien par ailleurs"

What does PG stand for in this context?

Thanks

Joanna
