Equine Oral Sugar Test

Endocrinology Laboratory

The Endocrinology Work Group hosted at Tufts University has recently updated their equine metabolic syndrome recommendations. We consequently updated the information in the equine oral sugar test (OST) protocol on our website and post-OST interpretation to reflect reference ranges for both low and high dose oral sugar tests. The high dose OST has increased sensitivity for detection of insulin dysregulation compared to the lower dose.
