Hi doctor,

My friend advised me to check my glucose on her glucometer. The results were as follows after eating a meal with the following nutrition specs: Carbohydrates 98 g, fiber 21 g, protein 28 g, fat: 27 g, saturated fat: 4.5 g, calories: 720. Blood sugar after 1 hour 113, after 2 hours 131 and after 3 hours 121. Am I diabetic or pre-diabetic or IGT? I have never had an OGTT or any other test for diabetes before.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Why are you worried that you have diabetes?
  • Do you have polyuria that is increased frequency or volume of urination or any positive family history or numbness of the feet?
  • Whatever the cause might be with the values you have sent I can assure you that you are not even prediabetic
  • If you want to confirm, then you can go for OGTT (oral glucose tolerance test) with 50 g 1 hour, 75 g 2 hours or 100 g 3 hours test which will monitor your body's ability to break down glucose following a fixed glucose load. Only glucose no other protein or fiber.
  • More important is your fasting blood sugar following 8-12 hours of fasting. You may drink water.
