We aim to find out a proper clinical approach in order to minimize missing those subjects with high 2hr PG but 'normal' fasting PG levels. We analyzed data collected from a previously published population-based prevalence survey for glucose intolerance in 1486 Hong Kong Chinese subjects… CONTINUE READING
