If your sugar is above that level (or above 11.1mmol/l or 200mg/dl after
eating ANYTHING), then you're right to be concerned and should go to your
doc and ask for more tests, including a glucose tolerance test.
Why would they have a GTT? Those numbers are diagnostic.
Not if they're only seen once, hence my comment about further tests. A GTT
is actually pat of "further tests".
Also, in the
U.S. GTT isn't routinely used for dx, except in gestational diabetes.
diabetes and not knowing is not a good idea, as is having diabetes and
doing nothing about it WHEN you know, so now you know :-)
If you find out you ARE diabetic, take it seriously, get it under control
and you'll be posting here in 50years (unles you're aleady 90 years old
I just want to reiterate that I have only ever had two fbgs above 109 in
my life, and those were 111 and 113. That didn't stop me from developing
very severe complications in terms of peripheral neuropathy years ago.
So like I said, take it seriously.
