adults are known to have prediabetes, a condition defined as having impaired fasting glucose (plasma glucose level of 100 to <126 mg/dL after an overnight fast), impaired glucose tolerance (plasma glucose level of 140 to <200 mg/dL after a 2-hour oral glucose tolerance test), or both (1-3).
Accordingly, MS encompasses type 2 diabetes or impaired fasting glucose plus two other of the following factors: hypertension (systolic pressure greater than (>) 140 or diastolic pressure greater (>) than 90 mmHg; Body Mass Index (BMI) greater than 30; elevated urinary albumin excretion rate; hypertriglyceridemia or low HDL-C (normal values are similar to the ATP III criteria).
Doctors sometimes refer to this state of elevated blood glucose levels as Impaired Glucose Tolerance or Impaired Fasting Glucose (IGT/IFG), depending on which test was used to detect it.
