Diagnosing Diabetes

Share this:

Amy Kimberlain, Registered Dietitian with Baptist Health South Florida, talks about different tests for diagnosing diabetes or prediabetes.
She advises doing fasting plasma glucose and according with the values, patients can be diagnosed correctly.
The expert explains something under 100 indicates everything is ok, but something above 126 would be indicative of possibly diabetes, she explains.
A1C and oral glucose tolerance tests are also important. Also, she says if someone has had a fasting level elevated or surfaced, she recommends doing the tests again. **************************************************************************************************************************************************************************
