Pre-diabetes can be understood as the “reserve army” of diabetes. When your fasting blood glucose is between 6.1 and 7.0 mmol/L, and your blood glucose 2 hours after a meal is between 7.8 and 11.1 When your blood sugar is between 6.1 and 7.0 mmol/L on a fasting day and between 7.8 and 11.1 mmol/L two hours after a meal, you are in pre-diabetes.
Pre-diabetes has no obvious symptoms and is easily overlooked. However, in fact, about one-third of Chinese adults are pre-diabetic, and if pre-diabetes is not managed, of which 65% of people will develop diabetes within 6 years and 93% of people with pre-diabetes will develop diabetes within 20 years, so regularly Screening is the key. The “glucose tolerance test” is one of the best laboratory tests for diagnosing diabetes.
