Hello, I think my doctor may have prematurely diagnosed me as diabetic. Here is what happened. Regular full lab blood test in dec 2002 my fasting glucose 100 My fasting glucose july 2004 140 ( i did not know i was suppose to fast and drank 4 ounces of mountain dew to take my medicine 45 minutes or less before the blood was drawn. He ordered a GTT and my fasting for it was 102 my one hour reading was 317 my two hour reading was 144. He now says I am a diabetic. I did a 24 hour urine test this week but the results are not back yet. All the information i get from medical sites on the internet says anything above 200 on the one hour reading is abnormal but makes no mention as to what it means if it is 317 as my was. They all only say that the two hour reading is what is important. That if it is 140 to 200 then you are considered glucose intolerant. Over 200 a diabetic. It looks like to me that I would be glucose intolerant and not a diabetic. Does anyone else know how if my 317 reading makes me a diabetic? Thanks and take care.
