A Glucose Postprandial (PP), 2 hours (Post meal) test is also known as two hour PPG or two-hour post prandial blood sugar test. The term postprandial means after a meal. This test helps to detect diabetes. It measures the levels of glucose (sugar) after 2 hours a meal is taken. The glucose postprandial test is done: • To detect the presence of diabetes • To detect any other insulin-related disorder • To screen for gestational diabetes (diabetes at the time of pregnancy)

faqFrequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

To take the blood sample, a tourniquet (elastic) band is placed tightly on the upper arm. The patient is asked to make a fist. This helps in the buildup of blood filling the veins and it becomes easy to collect the blood. The skin is cleaned before inserting the needle in the vein in order to prevent bacteria from entering. The needle is then inserted into the vein in the arm and the blood sample is collected in the vacutainer.
The risk factors for having diabetes include being overweight or doing limited or no physical activity, having a family history of diabetes, gestational (pregnancy) diabetes, polycystic ovary syndrome, high blood pressure, low high-density lipoprotein levels, high triglyceride levels, having prediabetes, and having a history of heart disease.
The symptoms which can be noted in case of diabetes or insulin-related disorders include frequent urination, unusual thirst, blurred vision, tiredness, repeated infections, and slow healing of sores.
The other tests which might be advised along with Glucose, postprandial test include fasting blood glucose test, HbA1c test, and glucose tolerance test.
Diabetes occurs when the levels of blood glucose (sugar) become too high. Blood glucose is the main source of energy and is derived from the food which is consumed. Insulin is a hormone which is produced by the pancreas. Its function is to help derive glucose from food and deliver it to cells so that it can be used for energy. When the body doesn't produce enough insulin or is not able to use the insulin well, the glucose levels rise due to abnormal regulation of insulin in the body which leads to diabetes.
Diabetes affects major organs of the body which include the heart, blood vessels, nerves, eyes, and kidneys. Uncontrolled blood glucose levels can cause damage to these organs and create complications if the blood glucose levels are not controlled. The complications can even cause disability in the body and can be life-threatening as well.
The term ‘Hyperglycemia’ refers to high levels of glucose than the normal range in the blood.
