International Diabetes Federation Recommends Use of 1-Hour Plasma Glucose Test to Diagnose Intermediate Hyperglycaemia and Type 2 Diabetes

2 Apr 2024 • The International Diabetes Federation (IDF) has released a Position Statement that presents the 1-hour post-load plasma glucose (1-h PG) test as a more sensitive and practical method to screen for intermediate hyperglycaemia (IH) and type 2 diabetes(T2D) in people at risk.

The Statement recommends the use of 1-h PG with the validated cut points of 155 mg/dL (8.6 mmol/L) for IH and 209 mg/dL (11.6 mmol/L) for T2D.

The IDF Position Statement reviews findings that the 1-h post-load PG > 155 mg/dL (8.6 mmol/L) in those with NGR during an OGTT is highly predictive for detecting people at risk of progression to T2D, micro- and macrovascular complications, obstructive sleep apnoea, cystic fibrosis-related diabetes, metabolic dysfunction-associated steatotic liver disease, and premature death

People at risk can be detected earlier than with the currently recommended glycaemic thresholds. Therefore, the IDF Position Statement recommends the adoption of 1-h PG with the aforementioned cut points.
