People having RCBG [greater than or equal to] 140 mg/dl are most likely to have frank diabetes mellitus while those having RCBG above 113 mg/dl are likely to have pre-diabetic status and likely to have impaired fasting glucose (IFG).
Tests for Diagnosing Prediabetes and Diabetes Prediabetes (also called Impaired Fasting Glucose)--Blood glucose levels are higher than normal but not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes.
Results also showed that consumption of dairy products other than cheese, and calcium intake, were associated with a decrease in the incidence of type 2 diabetes or impaired fasting glucose. This study supports previous epidemiological research that associated dairy intake with a lower prevalence of obesity-related chronic diseases.
"To our knowledge no other studies have reported specifically on the association of sleep and impaired fasting glucose, but our estimates are in line with studies that examined the association of sleep, impaired glucose tolerance, and type 2 diabetes.
For patients with frank diabetes, which remains underdiagnosed,[sup.19] they should be managed by their primary care physician or diabetic specialist according to standard guidelines.[sup.20] For those with impaired fasting glucose (IFG), consideration should be given to lifestyle modification and/or initiation of metformin to prevent progression to diabetes.[sup.21] For these patients and for those with normal fasting blood glucose, our results, combined with prior studies, suggest that repeat glucose levels should be measured to screen for the development of diabetes at least once yearly while men remain on ADT.
They were labelled as pre-diabetic and classified as having impaired fasting glucose (FPG 6.1 - 6.9 mmol/l, re-defined by the ADA in 2003 as 5.6 - 6.9 mmol/l, but this latter definition has not been universally accepted) and impaired glucose tolerance (2hPG after a 75 g OGTT 7.8 - 11.0 mmol/l).
One patient who met both criteria was found to have impaired fasting glucose, and another who met both definitions had type 2 diabetes.

To test this hypothesis we analyzed liver function tests (ALT, AST and GGT), blood pressure, fasting blood glucose levels and lipid profile, body mass index, and waist circumference of subjects without any known hypertension, diabetes mellitus, impaired fasting glucose and hyperlipidemia.
Given these controversial results the authors investigated the relationship between baseline plasma selenium concentration and occurrence of dysglycemia (impaired fasting glucose or type 2 diabetes) in an elderly French cohort.
