glucose ratio

glucose ratio

The concentration of the glucose level in the cerebrospinal fluid divided by its concentration in the blood. A ratio of less than 0:3 suggests acute bacterial meningitis rather than viral or aseptic meningitis.
Synonym: cerebrospinal fluid-to-blood glucose ratio

We made prolonged fasting test to the patients with a close follow-up and the serum glucose, insulin, c-peptide and insulin glucose ratio detected at the third and 4th hours of the test were biochemically suitable with insulinoma.
Having a CSF glucose/blood glucose ratio of 0.69 and 1 respectively, the case could not be separated from the mechanical ventilator due to a lack of respiratory effort.
The CSF glucose/blood glucose ratio is a simple marker that is often utilised, but it should be emphasised that it was shown to predict the presence of bacterial meningitis more precisely than routine CSF measurements.
Few know which foods have a fructose to glucose ratio greater than 1 off the top of our heads.
Objectives: To compare the clinical and laboratory features of tuberculous meningitis with bacterial meningitis and to determine if protein glucose ratio in the cerebrospinal fluid can be predictive of the condition.
Honey with high fructose: glucose ratio would remain liquid for Longer periods because of the modification of the saturated level of glucose by the presence of the larger amount of fructose [12].
Pleural fluid was as follows: pH 7.17, LDH 851 U/l, pleural/serum LDH ratio 1.9, pleural/serum protein ratio 0.9, pleural/serum glucose ratio 0.5, WBC count 0.15x[10.sup.9]/l (86% neutrophils).
A normal maximum-to-minimum glucose ratio on the 100-g test is 1.5-2:1.
The results on lactate/blood glucose ratio of control and single and multiple extract doses administered rats, unexposed and exposed to C-H-R ([T.sub.rec] 23 [degrees]C) and after recovery ([T.sub.rec] 37 [degrees]C) have been given in Table 2.
A total of 10 surrogate measures of IR were used in this study, including fasting insulin, homeostasis model assessment (HOMA) of IR, log (1/HOMA), empirical fasting IR index, fasting insulin:fasting glucose ratio, Raynaud index, Bennetts index, quantitative insulin sensitivity check index, Avignon index, and McAuley index (see Appendix).
Indeed, according to the company, the test is designed to be used in conjunction "with standard CSF tests [such as] bacterial Gram stain, bacterial culture, CSF glucose, CSF-blood glucose ratio, CSF protein concentrations, and CSF leukocyte counts." It "fills a clinical testing void," because it is a fully automated test, thereby allowing "round-the-clock" testing, Cepheid said in a written statement.
