3 Multiple choice questions

  1. - FPG below 110 mg/dL
    - 2h PG below 140 mg/dL
    Borderline type includes those who are neither diabetic nor normal types, e.g. IFG or IGT.

  2. -Impaired Glucose Tolerance (IGT). Glucose level rises higher than 140 but is less than 200.
    -Impaired Fasting Glucose (IFG).
  3. 2hrs after 75g glucose load. Correlates to values between 140 and 199mg/dL. Value of less than 140mg/dL are considered normal.

3 True/False questions

  1. Two Hour Posprandial Plasma Glucose (2-H PP)Plasma glucose measured 2hrs after 75g glucose load. Value greater than or equal to 200mg/dL indicative of DM if confirmed on another day by either an elevated FPG (above 126) or RPG value (200) or elevated glycosylated hemoglobin A1c.


  2. Screening for Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM)No fasting required. 50g glucose load. Between 24-28 weeks gestation. If FPG >125mg/dL then GDM confirmed. If Peak plasma or 2hr glucose value >200mg/dL then GDM confirmed.


  3. What are the 3 criteria that lead to a diagnosis of diabetes?- Fasting plasma glucose (FPG): 126 mg/dL or higher
    - Plasma glucose 2 hr after 75 g glucose load (2hr PG): 200 mg/dL or higher
    - A casual/random plasma glucose (PG) of 200 mg/dL or higher
    - Confirmation is not required if the patient presents with either a hyperosmolar or ketotic crisis. The criteria apply to both adult and pediatric patients.
