Introduction: Impaired glucose tolerance


Impaired glucose tolerance: Impaired Glucose Tolerance (IGT) means you have some problems with your sugar processing, but you don't (yet) have full diabetes. It is almost a "pre-diabetes" disease and seems very similar to a very mild form of Type 2 diabetes. However, IGT is below the official thresholds for diabetes, so you are not officially diabetic.

Impaired glucose tolerance: Impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) means that blood glucose during the oral glucose tolerance test is higher than normal but not high enough for a diagnosis of diabetes. IGT is diagnosed when the glucose level is 141 to 199 mg/dL 2 hours after a person is given a drink containing 75 grams of glucose. 1
