Lynette Michelle Augustine, Rajesh Gangaram

Abstract


Primary Aim

  1. Comparison of point of care glucose meter analysis of capillary blood glucose  with laboratory analysis venous blood glucose for screening and fasting glucose tolerance tests in pregnancy

 

 

Secondary Aims

  1. Compare the cost effectiveness of using glucose meter testing of capillary       blood versus standard laboratory testing of venous blood for glucose. 

 

  1. Determine the sensitivity of the screening glucose tolerance test (SGTT)

 

  1. Determine the cutoff value for screening glucose tolerance when using the point of care glucose meters

 

  1. Comparison of Accuchek Active glucose meter and Haemocue glucose analyser for screening and diagnosis of gestational diabetes
