I was just diagnosed with Glucose Intolerance, and many unanswered questions. Is there anybody here who can tell exactly what this is, what to expect in the future?? Also, can this turn into diabetes? Thanks for help.

The “normal” body keeps the level of glucose in the blood within a fairly narrow range which is normally between 70 and 100 mg/dl. On the other hand, a person is diagnosed with diabetes if two or more fasting blood glucose determinations are greater than 126 mg/dl. That leaves some sort of margin – between 100 and 126 mg/dl which is higher than normal but not high enough to be diagnostic of diabetes. So, if your glucose consistently falls within this range, you are diagnosed with glucose intolerance. That is what you have. So, you don’t have diabetes, but you are at increased risk of developing it in the future. Nobody can tell you for sure will you ever get it, but there’s such risk. I would suggest you to act to prevent diabetes - follow a healthy diet, if you are overweight then weight reduction will be very good for your future health, and, finally, make sure to have your glucose checked on a regular basis just to keep an eye on it should you need any treatment.
