Confused. got 1 touch machine two weeks ago, readings are frequently as high as 20 mmol, but did glucose tolerance test and it was normal?? what do?

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

A form of prediabete: The gold standard for diagnosing diabetes is to drink a very high sugar test drink and measure blood glucose at up to 2 hours after. Normal people will have a 2 hr blood glucose of 200 but for people who are 140-199, the term impaired glucose tolerance is used. This means an increased risk of type 2 diabetes and need for a healthier diet and weight loss ...Read more
See below: Glucose tolerance, i.e.: normal sugars are fasting<100, 2 hours after eating<140 glucose intolerance, i.e.: not normal = fasting sugar 100-125 is pre-diabetes and 2-hrs after eating 140-199 is prediabetes.

A check for diabetes: The GTT is a way for us to see who is at highest risk of diabetes. It is recommended that everyone be screened during their pregnancy, usually around 24-28 weeks. We will give you a bottle of a very sugary drink. You have five minutes to drink it all! Then a hour later we do a blood test to see how you metabolized the sugar. If you are high risk you may need further testing or treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
The blood sugar concentration or blood glucose level is the amount of glucose (sugar) present in the blood of a human or animal. The body naturally tightly regulates blood glucose levels as a part of metabolic homeostasis. Glucose is the primary source of energy for the body's cells, and blood lipids (in the form of fats and oils) are primarily ...Read more
