About fasting blood sugar test

Why is the fasting blood sugar test done?

If you are experiencing symptoms such as an increased hunger and thirst, unexplained weight loss, frequent urination, or tingling in your hands or feet, you can go for the fasting blood sugar test.

What does the fasting blood sugar test measure?

Fasting blood sugar (FBS) test measures our blood glucose levels after observing a fast for at least 8 hours and can be used to diagnose conditions such as prediabetes and diabetes.

The hormone insulin is required for allowing the glucose to enter our cells. It also helps in maintaining our blood glucose levels. When sufficient insulin is not produced by the pancreas or when the produced insulin isn’t efficiently utilised by our body, diabetes can occur. Elevated blood sugar levels can even gradually damage our neurons and blood vessels.

  • Diabetes type 1

Type 1 diabetes (also known as insulin-dependent diabetes, juvenile diabetes, or childhood diabetes) occurs due to inadequate insulin production by the pancreas.

  • Diabetes Type 2

Type 2 diabetes (also known as non-insulin-dependent diabetes or adult-onset diabetes) is caused when the body is unable to properly use insulin for energy production. Type 2 diabetes affects more than 95 percent of those diagnosed with diabetes. Major causes include physical inactivity and an increased body weight.

  • Diabetes during pregnancy

Diabetes that develops during pregnancy is known as gestational diabetes. Women with gestational diabetes are likely to experience complications during pregnancy and delivery. These women and their children are also at risk to develop type 2 diabetes in the future. It is detected through prenatal screening.

Risks/side effects of fasting blood sugar test

There are usually no side effects or risks associated with a fasting blood sugar test. However, you might feel some pain for a few days in the area from where the blood will be taken using a needle. You can cover the same area with a bandaid to prevent infections from developing.

THINGS TO KNOW AFTER GETTING TESTED

Interpreting the fasting blood sugar test results

Reference range: 70-100mg/dl

  • Normal fasting blood glucose (or blood sugar) levels range between 70 and 100 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dl). Thus, you do not have diabetes if your test results fall within this range.
  • Fasting glucose levels of 110–125 mg/dl indicate impaired fasting glucose (i.e., prediabetes).
  • Diabetes is diagnosed when two different blood tests indicate that your fasting blood glucose level is more than or equal to 126 mg/dl.

Do follow the course of treatment advised by your doctor for controlling diabetes to prevent further serious ailments.

Ms Sujata arrived on time and was very polite and caring throughout the process. Actually there was a mistake on my part where I couldn't attend her calls because I was not well and i feel asleep bcoz of my medicines. I had scheduled an appointment for my mother but Ms Sujata somehow reached my address by asking my neighbours. Such a lovely girl, and also the collection process was really smooth. Would absolutely recommend everyone to check out their services
