What reccomendations would you make to a patient with an impaired FPG value who also tested in the impaired range with the oral glucose tolerance test?

Hey, I searched the manual and I can't find your question. Do you know the actual activity?

That's all I have:

Activity 7: Measuring Fasting Plasma Glucose (pp. 52–55)

20. Sample 1: glucose concentration of 95–105 mg/deciliter
23. Sample 2: glucose concentration of 110–120 mg/deciliter
Sample 3: glucose concentration of 126–136 mg/deciliter
Sample 4: glucose concentration of 115–125 mg/deciliter
Sample 5: glucose concentration of 135–145 mg/deciliter
Patient 1’s glucose reading was in the normal range.
Patient 3’s and Patient 5’s glucose readings were in the diabetic range.
Patient 2’s and 4’s glucose readings were in the impaired fasting glucose range.
A special diet would be recommended where simple sugars are restricted.
The diagnosis would be gestational diabetes. A special diet would be recommended
where simple sugars are restricted.

Oh, because I'm filling out exersice 4 activty 7 and the 4th question right above the pregnacy question is the one I'm asking about..

Do you have any idea about:

-What recommendations would you make to a patient with an impaired FPG value who also tested in the impaired range with the oral glucose tolerance test?

Like I said, it's right above the pregnacy question..

If they have impaired FPG values, they are likely experiencing diabetes. So I would advice them to monitor their blood glucose level and not eat foods high saturated in sugar. Also consider artificial sweeteners.
