Plasma glucose levels provide the cornerstone of diabetes evaluation. Unfortunately, glucose levels drop in vitro due to glycolysis. Guidelines provide suitable conditions which minimize glycolysis, such as immediate centrifugation or the use of ice/water slurry storage containers. For obvious practical reasons, most laboratories use blood collection tubes(More)
In vitro glycolysis poses a problem during diabetes screening, especially in remote laboratories. Point-of-care analysis (POC) may provide an alternative. We compared POC, routine and STAT analysis and a feasible protocol during glucose tolerance test (GTT) for pregnancy diabetes (GDM) screening. In the routine protocol, heparin tubes were used and(More)
