Impaired glucose tolerance

A pathological state in which BLOOD GLUCOSE level is less than approximately 140 mg/100 ml of PLASMA at fasting, and above approximately 200 mg/100 ml plasma at 30-, 60-, or 90-minute during a GLUCOSE TOLERANCE TEST. This condition is seen frequently in DIABETES MELLITUS, but also occurs with other diseases and MALNUTRITION. [from MeSH]

Glucose

A primary source of energy for living organisms. It is naturally occurring and is found in fruits and other parts of plants in its free state. It is used therapeutically in fluid and nutrient replacement. [from MeSH]

Fasting

Abstaining from all food. [from MeSH]

Calcitonin

A peptide hormone that lowers calcium concentration in the blood. In humans, it is released by thyroid cells and acts to decrease the formation and absorptive activity of osteoclasts. Its role in regulating plasma calcium is much greater in children and in certain diseases than in normal adults. [from MeSH]

Human calcitonin

Encoded by human CALCA Gene (Calcitonin Family), 32-aa 3.4-kD secreted Calcitonin polypeptide hormone is cleaved from a large polyprotein precursor synthesized by thyroid parafollicular 'C' cells. Opposite to the effect of PTH, Calcitonin induces a rapid drop in blood calcium and phosphate level by promoting bone incorporation. (NCI) [from NCI]

Fat

The glyceryl esters of a fatty acid, or of a mixture of fatty acids. They are generally odorless, colorless, and tasteless if pure, but they may be flavored according to origin. Fats are insoluble in water, soluble in most organic solvents. They occur in animal and vegetable tissue and are generally obtained by boiling or by extraction under pressure. They are important in the diet (DIETARY FATS) as a source of energy. (Grant & Hackh's Chemical Dictionary, 5th ed) [from MeSH]
