This update on the diagnosis of carbohydrate metabolism abnormalities focuses on a more rational evaluation of glucose metabolism with a clear line of demarcation between overt diabetes and impaired glucose tolerance levels. This approach has eliminated the confusion over a definition of mild asymptomatic diabetes in contradistinction to oven disease. In addition, there is a limited promise of diagnosis in certain instances by means of hemoglobin A1C-determinations.
