Hi,
Thanks for using healthcare magic.

I have gone through your history.

It can not be concluded that you are having diabetis just as your one post prandial level is high. Your fasting as well as urine reports are normal.

Laboratory reports has to be corelated with your signs and symptoms to confirm or rule out any diagnosis so I recommand you to consult your doctor. Doctor may advise you to go for HbA1c or may advise to have dietary restrictions and repeat the same test after some time.

I hope I have addressed your concern.

Feel free to revert to me in case if you have any query.

Thanks.

The GTT test was ordered by the doctor as my HB1Ac was noted slightly on a pre diabetic side. I checked my HB1AC which was noted to be 6.8.
with this information kindly let me know if am pre diabetic or not.

Hi,
Thanks for reverting to me with additional unformation.

Your HbA1C and GTT reports are suggestive that you are pre diabetic but still reports has to be co related with symptoms.

I recommand you to consult diabetologist . Doctor may advise you to have dietary restrictions and exercise and may advise to have GTT after some time.

I hope I have addressed your concern.

Feel free to revert to me in case if you have any query.

Thanks.
