Assess bacterial infection of CNS. Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is secreted by the choroid plexuses, around the cerebral vessels, and along the walls of the ventricles of the brain, filling the ventricles and cisternae and bathing the spinal cord. CSF is reabsorbed into the blood through the arachnoid villi. CSF turnover is rapid, exchanging about 4 times per day. CSF glucose levels may be decreased due to consumption by microorganisms, impaired glucose transport, or increased glycolysis. Elevated CSF glucose levels are consistent with hyperglycemia.
No special preparation is needed for Glucose Csf. Inform your doctor if you are on any medications or have any underlying medical conditions or allergies before undergoing Glucose Csf. Your doctor depending on your condition will give specific instructions.
