Screening for Prediabetes
Majid Ali, M.D.
Here are four essentials issues in screening for prediabetes:
1. Prediabetes and diabetes are not sugar problems and cannot be screened for with sugar testing, whether with fasting or two-hour post-prandial.
2. Prediabetes and diabetes are not sugar problems and cannot be screened for with tests for sugar stuck to proteins, such as hemoglobin (re:A1c test).
3. Predia betes and diabetes are not kidney problems and cannot be screened for with tests for protein in the urine.
4. Prediabetes and diabetes are not insulin problems and can only be screened for with insulin tests.
Anyone who disagrees with the above statements has not tested even ten patients with three-hour insulin profiles. If anyone consider my words dogmatic, she or he should consider my free course entitled “Dr. Ali’s Diabetes Course” and then decide if I am being so.
My Diabetes Course is spread over the following two websites:
