glucose tolerance test Gene Set

Dataset GAD Gene-Disease Associations
Category disease or phenotype associations
Type disease
Description A test to determine the ability of an individual to maintain homeostatis of blood glucose. It includes measuring blood glucose levels in a fasting state, and at prescribed intervals before and after oral glucose intake (75 or 100 g) or intravenous infusion (0.5 g/kg).
