Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Despite its large use and importance, OGTT is still plagued by poor reproducibility and sometimes is not appropriately performed. In 2006 the joint Study Group on Diabetes mellitus made recommendations concerning OGTT in order to harmonize the test procedure according to WHO and American Diabetes Association guidelines. This document should be regarded as an updated version of the original 2006 recommendations, including some improvements and changes, particularly regarding the use of OGTT for the diagnosis of gestational diabetes in agreement with the 2010 guidelines of the Italian Ministry of Health. The list of drugs having effect on the glucose tolerance has been updated too.
