IGT (IMPAIRED GLUCOSE TOLERANCE) - MESSAGE

Devote some time to know what is IGT

We diagnose a case of diabetes if fasting blood glucose is more than 126 mg%. Normal fasting glucose is less than 110. Values in between 110 to 126 is Impaired glucose tolerance and 2 hours post prandial (after food) is 200 mg %. Normal 2 hr PP should be less than 140. Values in between 140 to 200 is Impaired glucose tolerance.

Suppose your blood sugar is in Impaired range :

Remember IGT can revert back to normal if you take preventive measures, if not soon you will become a diabetic.
THIS IS A GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY : before you become diabetic you came to know about IGT, now you start diet modifications and start exercise, you will be a healthy man.
In Chennai study incidence of IGT was 8.7% in urban area and 7.8% in rural area [almost same]. It suggested that although high risk of subjects with IGT progressing into overt clinical diabetes are in equal number in urban & rural setting due to certain life style progression to overt diabetes is 4 times lower.
