July 2009

The current diagnosis of diabetes includes one of the following: a fasting plasma glucose greater than or equal to 126 mg/dL, symptoms of hyperglycemia and a random plasma glucose greater than or equal to 200 mg/dL or a 2 hour glucose concentration great than or equal to 200 mg/dL after the oral glucose tolerance test.  It is also recommended that confirmatory testing be performed on a different day unless there is clear evidence of hyperglycemia.
