The chart below contains the OGTT's blood glucose ranges for prediabetes and diabetes: Blood Glucose Range Diagnosis 140 to 199 mg/dL Prediabetes (also called Impaired Fasting Glucose) 200 mg/dL or higer Diabetes mellitus (type 2 diabetes) HbA1c(A1C or glycosylated hemoglobin test) If diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, your health care provider will regularly run a test called HbA1c (A1C or glycosylated hemoglobin test).
The American Diabetes Association guidelines are similar to others in advising that the glycosylated hemoglobin test be performed at least twice a year in patients with diabetes who are meeting treatment goals, with stable glycemic control, and quarterly in patients with diabetes whose therapy has changed or who are not meeting glycemic goals.
The board called for three interrelated activities: (1) mandatory electronic reporting of glycosylated hemoglobin by laboratories, but not by physicians; (2) best practice recommendations for health care providers and rosters of patients in their practice who are in poor glycemic control; and (3) mailing information and resources on diabetes management to patients with high glycosylated hemoglobin values) The initiative will create a registry of glycosylated hemoglobin test results--an estimated one to two million results annually--that is linked to patients and their physicians, with identifiable information such as name, birth date, and address.
