Here is the most recent criteria I'm aware of.

Sorry, she's got it.

Impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) and impaired fasting glucose (IFG)
 The terms IGT and IFG refer to a metabolic stage intermediate between
 normal glucose homeostasis and diabetes. This stage includes
 individuals who have IGT and individuals with fasting glucose levels
 >110 mg/dl (6.1 mmol/l) but <126 mg/dl (7.0 mmol/l) (IFG). The term
 IFG was coined by Charles et al. (115) to refer to a fasting plasma
 glucose (FPG) level >110 mg/dl (6.1 mmol/l) but <140 mg/dl (7.8
 mmol/l). We are using a similar definition, but with the upper end
 lowered to correspond to the new diagnostic criteria for diabetes.
