So it can be concluded that if Optical Density levels are above about .85, it is likely that the glucose levels will be in the diabetic range. FPG levels less than 110 mg/dl is considered normal. Anything between 110 and 126 mg/dl is considered insufficient or almost insufficient glucose absorption by cells. If a patient has levels at or above 126 mg/dl after running at least two test, diabetes can be diagnosed. According to the chart and graph above, patient 3 and patient 5 are considered diabetic.

Some of the signs of MPD are “non-psychotic symptoms, such as insomnia, fatigue, irritability, forgetfulness, difficulty in concentrating, and somatic complaints” (Urbanetto, Magalhaes, & Maciel, 2013).
