Glucose Intolerance

Glucose intolerance is term for metabolic conditions which result in high blood glucose levels. Pre-diabetes, type 2 diabetes, impaired fasting glucose and impaired glucose tolerance are all conditions which fall under the term glucose intolerant.

Glucose intolerance is an umbrella term for a group of metabolic conditions that result in higher than normal blood glucose levels. Both the World Health Organization (WHO) and the American Diabetes Association (ADA) have released classification systems and diagnostic criteria for diabetes mellitus (DM) and allied categories of glucose intolerance. Although similiar, there are a number of variances in recommendations which may result in differences in an individual’s classification. 

Type 1 diabetes mellitus (DM) (due to autoimmune B-cell destruction, usually leading to absolute insulin deficiency)
