Fasting Blood Glucose Test

In general, a blood glucose test measures the amount of glucose, a type of sugar, in a sample of the blood of a person. Glucose is one of a major source of energy for the body. Carbohydrates which are generally found in fruit, cereal, bread, pasta, rice, etc. are quickly converted into glucose in the body and thereby raising the blood glucose level in the body.

Generally, the blood glucose test may be done at any time of the day, but if you have signs of diabetes, then your doctor may order fasting blood glucose test. Fasting blood glucose test is done after you have not eaten anything for at least 8 hours. This test is usually done to monitor the blood glucose level of the patients suffering from diabetes. This test may also be done for various other reasons. This test may help to screen a person for diabetes as diabetes may not cause symptoms in the early stages in some people. If you are 45 years old and above, then you should be tested after every 3 years. If you are having any of the risk factors related to diabetes, then you should be tested at an early stage as possible.

Risk factors for diabetes are

  • Overweight (body mass index, or BMI, of 25 or higher)
  • Blood pressure of 140/90 mmHg or higher
  • Woman who had gestational diabetes or has delivered a baby weighing 9 pounds or more.
  • Polycystic ovary disease
  • Close relative of a diabetic patient

Children who are 10 years old and above and are overweight or have other risk factors, should be tested for diabetes every 3 years, even if they are not experiencing any symptoms.

If you had a random blood glucose test (test done at any time of the day), a normal result generally, depends on when you last ate but most of the time, the blood glucose level will be less than 125 mg/dL. And if you had a fasting blood glucose test, then

  • A level between 70 and 100 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL) is considered normal blood glucose level.
  • A level of 100 to 125 mg/dL indicates that you have prediabetes, an impaired fasting glucose. This blood glucose level increases the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
  • A blood glucose level of 126 mg/dL and higher generally, means you are suffering from diabetes.
