Rapilose OGTT Solution
If you are looking a replacement following the new Lucozade formulation, Rapilose OGTT solution is one of two products recommended by Diabetes UK. Standardised to WHO guidelines, Rapilose delivers 75g of glucose in a 300ml ready-to-use solution.
There are many NHS trusts now using Rapilose for glucose tolerance testing, particularly in antenatal care, where it significantly reduces reflux compared with the leading competitor.

Be Aware- New Lucozade Formula
If you are currently using Lucozade for the delivery of Glucose Tolerance Testing, please be aware that the formulation changed in April 2017.
The new Lucozade formulation contains significantly less glucose than the previous formulation which has a significant impact on the delivery of glucose as part of a glucose tolerance test. The new Lucozade formulation requires the patient to consume approximately 950 mls of Lucozade in order to deliver the required amount of glucose.
Diabetes UK has more information on the implication for clinicians, but the general consensus is that an alternative product will need to be used. Click here to visit their site.
