Standard oral tolerance test, standard gestational screen, standard gestational tolerance test, GTT.
To evaluate blood glucose levels to assist in diagnosing diseases such as diabetes.
Plasma (1 mL) collected in a gray-top (sodium fluoride) tube. Serum (1 mL) collected in a red- or tiger-top tube or plasma collected in a green-top (heparin) tube is also acceptable, but plasma is recommended for diagnosis. It is important to use the same type of collection container throughout the entire test.

|Plasma glucose values are reported to be 10% to 20% higher than serum values. According to recommendations of the ADA, the diagnosis of gestational diabetes is made if any of the four thresholds are met or exceeded. According to recommendations of the ACOG or National Diabetes Data Group, the diagnosis of gestational diabetes is made if any two of the four thresholds are met or exceeded.ACOG = American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists; ADA = American Diabetes Association.|
