- Less than 5.7% means normal
- The FPG (fasting plasma glucose) test
- At least 126 mg/dl means diabetes.
- Between 100 mg/dl and 125.99 mg/dl means pre-diabetes.
- Less than 100 mg/dl means normal
- An abnormal reading following the FPG means the patient has impaired fasting glucose (IFG).
- The OGTT (oral glucose tolerance test)
- At least 200 mg/dl means diabetes.
- Between 140 and 199.9 mg/dl means pre-diabetes.
- Less than 140 mg/dl means normal.
- An abnormal reading following the OGTT means the patient has impaired glucose tolerance (IGT)
