BACKGROUND Recently, the threshold of fasting blood glucose indicating diabetes mellitus was lowered to 7.00 mmol/L (126 mg/dL) and the term 'impaired fasting glucose' (IFG; fasting blood glucose ranging from 6.11 mmol/L to 6.99 mmol/L or from 110 mg/dL to 126 mg/dL) was introduced to define a prediabetic state. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the incidence of the above states in a Canadian population with suspected coronary artery disease and to compare their risk profiles and angiographic status to… CONTINUE READING
