Persons with fasting blood glucose of 110-125 have Impaired Glucose 
Tolerance, not borderline diabetes. 25% of those persons will develop Type 2 
every year if they do not exercise and lose weight (most are greatly 
overweight). When you are overweight, your body requires more insulin.  
That's why initial starting doses of insulin are based on weight. Body Mass 
Index is used now to determine overwt., obesity,etc.The old ht. and wt. 
charts should be replaced by BMI.
