I usually post on the Fibro board but I had a question for you guys.  My neurologist sent me for a 2 hour blood glucose tolerance test because of the burningin my feet an the family history of diabetes.  My fasting level was 110, 30 mins after drinking the sugar water it was 215, thirty mins later it was 214, and and hour after that it was 179.  The doctor has not received the results yet but the lab nurse is a friend of mine and she gave me the results.  My father, brother and all m y grandparents are/were diabetics.  Do these levels seems high to you all?  I just want to have a little knowledge before the doc calls and I get the results from him.

Hi Missy, sorry you are having these issues with the feet and all. It looks like you're having high blood sugar problems from the test results.  According to what I've read, a nondiabetic would have equal to or less than 110 after 2 hours of the GTT.  "Impaired glucose tolerance" would be equal to or greater than 140 but less than 200, and full-blown diabetes would be more than 200 after 2 hours of the GTT.  Most doctors would also have you come in for just a fasting test at the lab or another blood test called the A1c to see if you have frequent high blood sugar readings.  Normal fasting is under 100.  Since diabetes is in your family and since you have had burning in your feet, you might be on the way to diabetes especially if: 1) you are overweight, and 2) you don't get any exercise, and 3) you're eating a lot of carbohydrates.  Please read through our past threads about diet, exercise and blood sugar norms, so when you do see your doctor you'll be better prepared.  Good luck.  I hope you can get this under control!  :-)    Here is a website that talks about the GTT:
