Impaired fasting glu: A fasting glucose of 118 is not normal, but not diabetes. It would be called “impaired fasting glucose”. Normal fasting glucose is 100 or less. Diabetes is 126 or higher. Impaired glucose tolerance is another term that is based on a glucose tolerance test. In both, there is a high chance of progressing to diabetes. Often there is a family history, obesity, hypertension, and abnormal lipids.
