Permit the assessment of serum glucose levels and lipid levels and the prediction of the 8-year future risk of developing diabetes mellitus in patients without diabetes mellitus.

If a cholesterol measurement is to be performed along with
triglycerides, the patient should be fasting 9-12 hours prior to

The assay manufacturer, Roche, notes that N-acetylcysteine, when
administered in high concentrations (such as for treatment of
acetaminophen overdose), can interfere with their assay for HDL
cholesterol, leading to falsely low results.

For risk calculations to be performed, the following patient-specific
information must be provided at the time of order:
Age: Years
Gender: M (for male) or F (for female)
Height Feet: Feet
Height Inches: Inches
Weight: lbs
Systolic Blood Pressure: mmHg
Diastolic Blood Pressure: mmHg
Treatment for High B.P.: Y (for yes) or N (for no)
Parental History of Diab: Y (for yes) or N (for no)

Patient Preparation

The assay manufacturer Beckman Coulter advises: "N-Acetyl Cysteine
(NAC), when administered in therapeutic concentrations (for the
treatment of acetaminophen overdose), has been...determined to
interfere with assays for...Cholesterol, Uric Acid" where "NAC
interference may lead to falsely low results." According to Beckman
Coulter, the NAC interference should be insignificant by 12 hours
after completion of the initial loading dose of an IV infusion
treatment regimen consisting of an initial loading dose of 150 mg/kg
administered over 1 hr, a second dose of 50 mg/kg administered over 4
hrs and a third dose of 100 mg/kg administered over 16 hrs.
