Lab test: Glucometer is not used for diagnosis. If you want to know if you have diabetes, ask your doctor to order fasting glucose and an A1c. If bs is over 126 fasting and a1c is over 6.5, then you have diabetes. Good luck. ...Read more

Tolerance (Definition)

Passed glucose tolerance with flying colors how come 2 hours fter eating pizza sugar 163?

Passed glucose tolerance with flying colors how come 2 hours fter eating pizza sugar 163?

GTT is variable: A glu tolerance test is variable, which is 1 reason its not done much. It is hard to compare 2 hr post-glu with 2 hr post-pizza. If your glu were 163 post oral glu, that would be impaired glucose tolerance, which may be what you have. Probably best to focus on what you can do. If fasting glu less than 126 and a1c less than 6.5 you don't have diabetes, yet. Can you improve your exercise and weight? ...Read more
