Fasting Glucose Testing

This test is used to measure the amount of glucose in your blood at the time that the sample is taken.  The test is used to detect hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia, to diagnose diabetes, and to monitor the glucose levels of diabetics.


The test is typically done after you have fasted (haven't eaten) for 8-10 hours.  Your doctor may recommend the test if you have a family history of diabetes, if you're overweight, or if you're older than 40.

  • Increased thirst

  • Increased urination
