I only know this--

normal glucose-
70-110 mg/gl
impaired fasting-110-125 mg/dl
diabetes- >126 mg/dl

after 2 hrs 75gm OGTT--

normal -
<140 mg/dl
impaired glucose tolerance- 140- 199 mg/dl
diabetes- >200 mg/dl

any random sample, if blood glucose > 200 mg/dl- diabetes


correct me if m wrong

I meant Random glucose :sorry:

Quote:
The reference values for a "normal" random glucose test in an average adult are 70 - 140 mg/dl (3.9 - 7.8 mmol/l), between 140 - 200 mg/dl is considered pre-diabetes, and > 200 mg/dl is considered diabetes according to ADA guidelines

Just think about it.
Pre-prandial can mean only two things--either fasting or random. It is fasting if it is tested before breakfast (overnight fasting) and it is random if it is tested before lunch or dinner.
