Glucose Tolerance Test Often Tells lf a Patient Has Diabetes
Bv Dr. S.L. Andelman
Today let’s discuss a test every one of us should have — the glucose tolerance test. This simple procedure determines the normality or abnormality of a patient’s glucose metabolism and often indicates whether a patient has diabetes.
The test works like this: the patient fasts before the test to make sure his glucose level isn’t already high. Then he swallows 50 grams of glucose. In the normal person the blood glucose level rises from 90 mg. percent to about 140, then falls back to normal within three hours. If the glucose level doesn’t drop

opposing “any attempt to establish abortion on demand as a matter of policy in the Cedar Rapids area.’’
'rho letter was sent to Dr. Robert Sedlacek, president of the Linn County Medical Society, and officials of St. Luke’s and Mercy hospitals.
Dr. John Jacobs, who helped prepare the statement, said he believes it represents the thinking of a majority of medical doctors in the city.
The letter said a group of physicians met Dee. 13 “to discuss the necessity for reaffirmation of our dedication to protect human life.
“We feel all people who go into the medical and allied fields, whether they be physicians or nurses or hospital administrators or hospital em-, plover. have become involved and are dedicated to some feeling of intrinsic worth in human I life.
“We further feel it Is our duty and obligation to speak out and make our position known when events threaten human life.” The doctors’ statement said abortion on demand is opposed “particularly in our hospitals. We take this stand with the following points in mind:
“First and foremost, that human life does have intrinsic

Glucose is the sugar which provides the body with energy.
Insulin permits glucose to enter the cells of muscles, fat tissue and the liver from the bloodstream. When food is digested, the sugars and starches in it are changed into glucose which is then carried to all parts of the body through the bloodstream.
When cells have enough glucose, the excess is stored in muscles and in the liver in a form called glycogen, for use when needed. 'Hiis storage system allows the body to function' normally without a continuous,1 uninterrupted intake of food.
The liver releases just enough glucose to meet the requirements of the body cells. Except for the period immediately after a meal, when the glucose level rises sharply, the amount of glucose in the blood remains constant. If no food is eaten, the glycogen stores in the liver are rapidly used up and would be exhausted after several hours except for the fact that the liver can manufacture new glucose from protein and fats in the
