Abstract

Objective: This study was carried out to present data on serum fasting glucose level in healthy young

women with regular menstrual cycle who have moderate active state across their three different stages of the

menstrual cycle (menstruation, proliferation and secretory) phases.

Subjects and Method: A total of 50 non-diabetes women with normal regular menstrual cycle were involved

in this study, the subjects ages ranged from 20-24 years, fasting venous blood (3ml) was collected at early

morning during menstruation phase (days 1-5), proliferation phase (6-14 days) and the secretory phase (15-

28days) for each subject, serum glucose measurement were conducted by colorimetrictechnique.

Results: The present study shows non-significant (p<0.05) increase in the mean of glucose level during

menstruation and proliferative phase (92.8±12.7, 92.6±10.2 mg/dl) respectively in the same subject

comparison with secretory phase (90.48±8.3mg/dl) in the same subject.

Conclusion: This study revealed that serum glucose level does not change along stages of normal and

regular menstrual at rest or moderate active young women.
