How to know if diabetes 2 is cured/remitted or reversed?
A glucose tolerance test (GTT), also known as an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT), can show if your body is having problems processing glucose. and in those who had but now feel they have cured without drugs
Before having the test, do not eat or drink certain fluids for 8-12 hours. .
A blood sample will be taken before the test and your blood glucose will be measured. You'll then be given a sweet glucose drink.
After drinking the glucose drink, your blood glucose will be measured every half an hour and again after two hours.
The results of the GTT will show whether you have impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) or diabetes. This will be based on the amount of glucose in your blood both before and after drinking the glucose drink.
For someone without diabetes, the amount of glucose in their blood should be:
•less than 6 mmol/l before the test
•less than 7.8 mmol/l two hours after the test
If you have IGT, the amount of glucose in your blood will be:
•6-7 mmol/l before the test
•7.9-11 mmol/l two hours after the test
If you have diabetes, the amount of glucose in your blood will be:
•more than 7 mmol/l before the test
•more than 11 mmol/l two hours after the test
There is no other way to confirm if one has got cured or remitted the glucose intolerance.
