Glucose tolerance test: from Peter on 2007-07-19

A glucose tolerance test is a test to see how quickly the body is able to remove glucose from the bloodstream. High levels of glucose in the bloodstream can cause a lot of tissue damage. This test is done mostly to diagnose diabetes.
You will occasionally see this test referred to incorrectly as a glucose intolerance test.
