Can't find in my lab manual or on internet- I know it must be some kind of glucose test but cant find the "est" part... does anyone know the normal ranges and a short description of what it is for/significance?
Where did you see this? Written on a patient chart? If so, the unit secretary would be able to tell you what it is. I was thinking, estimated glucose, but never heard of such a test and couldn't find anything like that in my manuals.
Thanks anyway; my teacher and I were stumped and I guess if I run across it again we will either call the lab or ask unit secty(that was a good idea,wish I would have thought of it) We also had a regular glucose test on this workup and just used this for care plan analysis....I guess if we ever figure it out we will post it on this thread FYI
