Impaired fasting glucose

COLONIAL HEIGHTS, VA (WWBT) - Dr. John clay is treating "fasting glucose."

This is often referred to as "pre-diabetes," meaning blood sugars are above the normal range but not diagnostic of diabetes.

It often requires aggressive intervention to prevent this problem from worsening.

This is treated with the same interventions as diabetes such as weight loss, exercise, education on appropriate diet and often medication.
