The children were divided into three groups according to their height, weight, and body weight/height ratio; group I children had heights and weights below the 10th percentile for their age, group II had(More)
We set out to determine the physiological difference between the capillary blood of the arm and finger with the greatest possible accuracy using the HemoCue B-glucose analyzer on subjects undergoing a meal tolerance test (MTT) or oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT). MTT study was performed on 50 subjects who drank a liquid meal (Ensure, 40 g of(More)
