I think that is normal... I'm really not sure though. Awhile back my doctor thought I might have diabetes, and had me do a glucose test, and I think my blood sugar didn't go up at all, but it was so long ago I can't actually remember.

alunke82, the Diabetes Forum is not as active as Lyme but I am always there to help and answer questions if I can. (Please remember that none of the moderators at HealingWell are doctors. We just help with our own knowledge and experience.)

The two-hour glucose tolerance test (the GTT) has three groups of results. If a person's blood sugar is lower than 140 mg/dL (or 7.8 mmol/L the measurement used in most other countries), then the result is considered normal. If the result is between 140 and 199 (7.8 - 11 mmol/L), it is considered impaired glucose tolerance or at risk for diabetes. If the result is over 200 (11.1 mmol/L), then diabetes is indicated.

If your blood sugar was about the same after the two hours, I supposed that your doctor told you the test was "normal".

I hope that helps. By the way, the GTT is the only blood test that truly tell if the person can metabolize carbs or not. Fasting and regular two-hour tests after meals can help us understand a little about us but cannot truly tell us that we have diabetes or not.
