Postprandial hyperglycemia is an important factor in the progression of diabetes and related complications. To reduce the burden of the diabetes epidemic in Korea, a better understanding of the pathophysiology of postprandial hyperglycemia is needed as well as optimal treatment modalities based on individual characteristics of the patient. The standard oral glucose tolerance test can be used to identify those at high risk for diabetes and cardiovascular disease. In the treatment of postprandial hyperglycemia, physicians should provide lifestyle modification support as well as appropriate pharmacological treatment, such as incretin-based therapies. Further clinical trials using recently developed anti-diabetic treatments focusing on postprandial hyperglycemia are needed to evaluate the effectiveness of targeting postprandial hyperglycemia in order to prevent diabetes and diabetes complications.
Key Words: Diabetes mellitus, Glucose tolerance test, Postprandial hyperglycemia
