Abstract

We found that in obese youth, plasma glucose above 155 mg/dl (8.6 mmol/l) at 60 min of an OGTT, a predictor of type 2 diabetes (T2D) in adults, was present in 12% with normal glucose tolerance and 57% with impaired glucose tolerance. Performance of elevated 1-h glucose in predicting T2D in overweight youngsters should be tested.
