Abstract

This study aim to determine the effect of water intake on fasting blood sugar levels after 30 minutes of consumption among apparently healthy students in College of Health Technology, Calabar, Cross River State. The fasting blood sugar and 30 minutes blood sugar levels after water consumption of one hundred (100) students attending College of Health Technology, Calabar were determined using glucose oxidase/peroxidase method. The mean fasting blood sugar of apparently healthy students was 5.44±0.41mmol/L while that of 30minutes blood sugar after water consumption was 5.34±0.31mmol/L. There was no significant difference (P >0.05) between fasting blood sugar and 30 minutes blood sugar levels of apparently healthy students in College of Health Technology, Calabar. The mean fasting blood sugar levels among apparently healthy male students was 5.36±0.37mmol/L while that of 30minutes blood sugar after water consumption was 5.23±0.31mmol/L. There was no significant difference (P >0.05) between fasting blood sugar and 30 minutes blood sugar levels of apparently healthy male students in College of Health Technology, Calabar. The mean fasting blood sugar levels among apparently healthy female students was 5.57±0.45mmol/L while that of 30minutes blood sugar after water consumption was 5.31±0.30mmol/L. There was no significant difference (P >0.05) between fasting blood sugar and 30 minutes blood sugar levels of apparently healthy female students in College of Health Technology, Calabar. This shows that water intake of about 60CL 30 minutes prior to phlebotomy has no significant effect on sugar level. Therefore, patients with severe health conditions who are unable to undergo fasting blood sugar test may be allowed to drink water before undergoing such test.
