Hi There.

I went through the history you have posted here about your daughter's sugars. She fits in a classification of IGT- Impaired glucose tolerance. She DOES NOT HAVE JUVENILE DIABETES, a term used to be for type 1 diabetes, a insulin dependent type of diabetes.
She attained her menarche and yes, this is one of the reasons for mild hormonal changes in the body leading to insulin resistance. But being overweight, not exercising and eating too many calories, consuming more of a junk food are the main reasons why more and more of teen-agers are deveoloping this kind of impaired glucose tolerance. Please make sure she and the whole family change the lifestyle and she would certainly delay a frank diabetes for many years. Make sure the whole family is supportive and not critical of her lifestyle. Help her understand the ways to change it and be supportive in sharing the healthy diet and exercise patterns for her to bring her sugars down and avoid the diabetes for next many years. All the very best. Get back for any further queries.

Just repeat the test 3 months after she goes through diet and exercise planning. again I am repeating she doesn't have 'Juvenile diabetes' which people refer for 'type 1 diabetes'. please do not get overwhelmed by the terms. Act on the condition the way I mentioned. You have already done the fasting and PP tests along with HbA1c test, so need to repeat them now. Repeat them after 3 months to see the difference. If no difference in spite of strict diet control and exercise schedule, then see a Diabetologist for further evaluation. Take it easy and positively.

Dear friend, thank you for choosing HCM.
it is just one reading and the HbA1C is normal.
I would advise repeating a GTT which challenges with sugar and checks early glucose intolerence.
also there is no sugar in urine.
so , relax, take the repeat test fully fasting 8-10 hours at a standard NABL accredited lab.
if it shows criteria fitting diabetes, pl. start with consultation of a paediatrician.

I hope to have answered your query satisfactorily.
Take care and please keep me informed of your progress.
Good Luck !
May I request you to rate your experience here before you close.
