What does the term"BORDERLINE DIABETIC" mean?

border line diabetic means that your body is having problems matching your insulin requirements to you sugar intake.

Insulin responds to sugar in the bloodstream. In type II diabetes,(late onset) the insulin is not triggered by the sugar.

Borderline diabetes can be reversed by weight loss, healthy diet and weight bearing exercise

borderline diabetes:
a former term for type 2 diabetes or impaired glucose tolerance.

impaired glucose tolerance (IGT):
a condition in which blood glucose levels are higher than normal but are not high enough for a diagnosis of diabetes. IGT, also called pre-diabetes, is a level of 140 mg/dL to 199 mg/dL 2 hours after the start of an oral glucose tolerance test. Most people with pre-diabetes are at increased risk for developing type 2 diabetes. Other names for IGT that are no longer used are "borderline," "subclinical," "chemical," or "latent" diabetes.

It probably means impaired fasting glucose, meaning levels from 100-125mg/dl. A fasting glucose of 126 mg/dl on two occasions means you have diabetes, or a random blood sugar of 200mg/dl or more also qualifies.

It means that you have pre-diabetes a condition that close to 54 million Americans have and most don't even know it.

You are at a crossroads. If you change your diet, lose weight and excercise even 30 min a day you may be able to avoid one of the most insidious diseases out there and a killer to boot.

If you don't and continue on your current path you WILL get diabetes. Seems like a no brainer.

Usually it means that you are not a diabetic yet, but if you don't start taking better care of yourself you probably will be. Start watching what you eat and exercise regularly and you'll probably avoid becoming diabetic. No guarantee though, but it does help tremendously.

Borderline diabetes is someone who is very close to insulin dependency. They may even not be on any pills yet, but usually very close. If they stick to a "diabetic diet" with lots of exercise, in many cases they can prevent full blown diabetes.
Some people are using pills for diabetes, while others must inject themselves daily with insulin. (my experience)

Borderline Diabetes (web)

Source: Medify e-health

Borderline diabetes is not a type of diabetes, but can be a precursor to the condition. Borderline diabetes is essentially an impaired glucose tolerance, which occurs when the blood sugar levels are above normal but short of the diabetic cut-off range. The symptoms can potentially indicate type 1 or type 2 diabetes. Severe symptoms tend to be similar to type 1 diabetes; commonly including: thirst, excessive urination, tiredness/general weakness, diabetic coma, increased hunger and unexplained weight loss. Although borderline diabetes is not classed as diabetes the risk of developing other diabetic complications such as coronary heart disease is equal to that of any patient in the diabetic category. It is therefore recommended that they adopt the lifestyle changes advised for diabetics, and keep in regular contact with their doctor.

You are on the boarder of being a diabetic.

The term borderline or pre diabetes is a term doctors when they find your glucose within the high normal range. I was 140 when I was told that and found out later that if your doctor says your borderline or pre take steps, like watching your carbohydrate intake and exercise, hopefully you can control it without medication.

If your doctor hasn't already done so, have him or her do an A1C test, this blood test will give you an average of your glucose levels over the past three months.

It's a phrase many people use to suggest that a person is on the verge of getting diabetes. But in reality, there is no such thing as "borderline" diabetes. You either have it or you don't!

thats the same thing i want to know i was told that iam to

It means you are not diabetic as of yet, but you have the potential to be, if you don't want what you eat. The wrong diet could set you right into being diabetic.
