Impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) is a pre-diabetic state of hyperglycemia that is associated with insulin resistance Has anyone ever had to deal with a sudden impaired glucose tolerance ? I am doing some intermittent dry fast(18h per day) during 1 month & maybe it is related . I am used to control my blood sugar since 6 months so I know that it was not present many months ago. My BMI is 20.5 & I have lost 10kg (22 lbs) around slowly (a year) so It is not related to any obesity. But my overweight mother is diabetic type 2 (and grand-father too). I have found one study mentionning that very-low-calorie diets may induce insulin resistance and overt diabetes mellitus. My fasting blood sugar (FBS) is good (82-83mg/dl). But after a meal breaking the fast with also a home-made smoothie with only fruits, it raises above 140mg and <180mg after 2 hours. I have tested again with a simple fruit & oats, milk some honey and again same values. After 2 hours >140mg is defined as IGT or impaired glucose tolerance.I have confirmed those abrnormal values 4 times in 2-3 days. I am not fasting anymore to see if this could be related & will regain 1-2kg. My last hba1C last year was 5.2%(maybe different now) so I am not diabetic at least on two definitions (FBS<1g & HBA1C<6%). I have read a long time ago that some cronies (Dean Pomerleau I think but not sure) had those issues as well.
