Family Planning
Diabetes

Diabetes is a disease in which the body does not produce or properly use insulin.  Insulin is a hormone that is needed to convert sugar, starches and other food into energy needed for daily life.  The cause of diabetes continues to be a mystery, although both genetics and enviromental factors such as obesity and lack of exercise appear to play roles.

 

In order to determine whether or not a patient has pre-diabetes or diabetes, health care providers conduct a Fasting Plasma Glucose Test (FPG) or an Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT).  Either test can be used to diagnose pre-diabetes or diabetes.  The American Diabetes Association recommends the FPG because it is easier, faster, and less expensive to perform

 

With the FPG test, a fasting blood glucose level between 100 and 125 mb/dl signals pre-diabetes.  A person with a fasting blood glucose level of 126 mg/dl or higher has diabetes.
