whjat the hell kind of glucose beverage?

I’m about to do the insulin sensitivity test with the glucometer but i dont know what specific glucose beverage i have to drink… can i just put some of my pure glucose in water and drink it? haha. someone help!

If you can’t locate a glucola or standardized glucose beverage (from a local hospital or pharmacy) you could dump 75g of glucose into water. The osmolarity (determined by how much glucose in how much water) does affect the test so use only 300 mL of water with your glucose. Any more water will increase the glycemic index and increase your rate of glucose rise and perhaps even your peak.
