Impaired Glucose Tolerance

Glucose tolerance is said to be impaired when blood sugar levels are higher than normal but not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. This impairment is indicated by a fasting-blood-glucose reading between 115 and 140 mg/dl. Symptoms of diabetes are generally absent.

A person who has impaired glucose tolerance may improve, so that blood-sugar levels become normal, or may remain unchanged, with sugar levels between normal and high. About 25% of people with impaired glucose tolerance go on to develop diabetes.

People with impaired glucose tolerance are more likely to have high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels-conditions long implicated in coronary heart disease.
