ALFARO-TOLOZA, Patricio; OLMOS-DE-AGUILERA, Romina; GATICA ARANEDA, Juan Pablo  and  NAUTO BELMAR, Samuel. Test of Glucose Tolerance for diagnosis of type 2 Diabetes Mellitus and its previous stages, experience of a Primary Health Center of Chile: Preliminary study. Rev Cient Cienc Méd [online]. 2012, vol.15, n.1, pp.14-17. ISSN 1817-7433.

The Objective of this study was to characterize patients with suspected diabetes mellitus type 2 with fasting glucose less prior to 126mg/dl diagnosed early through the test of glucose tolerance.We did a cross sectio-nal study in the Family Health Center Violeta Parra de Chillan, Chile. The populations studied were patients with fasting blood glucose less than 126mg/dl, who entered the monitoring of suspected diabetes mellitus 2, to which test they performed oral glucose tolerance. A revision of the records of patients admitted from July to December 2011 monitoring for diagnosis of type 2 diabetes mellitus.The main measures of the study were the frequency of diagnosis of type 2 diabetes mellitus and other pre diabetic stage. Descriptive statistics were used to analyze the data. Of 364 patient records 61 were exclused for being admitted to monitoring blood glucose test without fasting. Of the 303 patients with adequate records, 49 (16.1%) were diagnosed with type 2 diabetes mellitus, of these 14 (4.6%) had fasting glucose of 110mg/dL or less. Pre-diabetes abnormalities had 176 (58%) patients. Only 89 (29.3%) patients showed no abnormalities. A high percentage would not be diagnosed as type 2 diabetes mellitus be achieved through the test of glucose tolerance, which justifies the realization.
