Cy - I just skimmed your article (will read in depth later), but I saw your values for fasting glucose values and needed to comment. Granted there is a little room for interpretation, but a fasting glucose >120 mg/dl usually is indicative of diabetes. A glucose over 110 mg/dl or so is usually indicative of impaired glucose tolerance. Granted there is even more room for interpretation when it comes to non-fasted glucoses, but anything over 200 mg/dl is way too high. One hour post meal, it should be back down to 140 mg/dl or less. Where did you get your normal fasting range of 50-400 mg/dl?
This is an interesting issue, so does anybody else have some comments. I'll read through in more detail and add anything else.
