Is glucose tolerance testing for women only?


Posted by lostangel51

 I manage an assisted living. I have a male resident age 74. His urine is increasingly sticky.His dinner appetite is decreased then about 8 every night he has extreme thirst.3-6 glasses of whayever.I checked his blood sugar & it was 317. I called his DR.(medicaid) & requested a glucose tolerance test. They came to the house & did a fasting blood sugar & said he is fine. This mans brother already passed from diabetes,When I asked about the glucose tolerance test I was told "thats only for women"
