Fasting plasma glucose was estimated by GOD/POD (glucose oxidase-peroxidase) method.
Absence of glycosuria or a normal fasting plasma glucose (fpg) level does not rule out a diagnosis of diabetes.
When defining diabetes based on hemoglobin A or fasting plasma glucose alone, the authors found fewer people with undiagnosed diabetes.
Our study showed increasing fasting plasma glucose, HbA1c, Total Cholesterol, total proinsulin, and insulin resistance (HOMA-IR) of [beta]-cell function.
Because some women with gestational diabetes actually had undiagnosed preexisting diabetes before their pregnancy, we measure a fasting plasma glucose on the morning after delivery to make sure that no further treatment is needed at that time.
Fasting plasma glucose decreased in response to both diets, but the decrease was significantly greater with two meals per day (-0.
The HOMA-IR method takes into account both fasting plasma glucose and fasting plasma levels and is widely used in epidemiological studies to determine insulin resistance.
The prevalence of the metabolic syndrome was also assessed according to the ATP III criteria[9]; when three or more of the following five conditions were present: abdominal obesity (waist circumference [greater than or equal to] 102 cm in men, [greater than or equal to] 88 cm in women); serum triglycerides equal to or greater than 150 mg/dl; HDL cholesterol less than 39 mg/dl in men; systolic blood pressure equal to or greater than 130 mm Hg and/or diastolic blood pressure equal to or greater than 85 mm Hg; and fasting plasma glucose 110 mg/dl or greater.

These include a fasting plasma glucose (FPG) test [greater than or equal to]126 mg/dl; symptoms such as increased urination and unexplained weight loss plus an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) of [greater than or equal to]200 mg/dl; an OGTT of [greater than or equal to]200 mg/dl two hours after a 75-gram glucose load; and an A1C of [greater than or equal to]6.
Over the preceding nine years, their fasting plasma glucose levels and hemoglobin A1C (HbA1c, a measure of blood glucose control over time) had been tracked.
3) In these studies the choice of a fasting plasma glucose (FPG) value [greater than or equal to]7 mmol/l for the diagnosis of diabetes largely rested on the demonstration that above this value there was a marked increase in the prevalence of retinopathy, but below this value retinopathy was rare.
