About Our Glucose Test
The glucose test is a blood test used to measure glucose (blood sugar) levels. Glucose is the major source of energy for the body and the brain's cells. Glucose is produced when carbohydrates are digested and is then transported to cells throughout the body via the hormone Insulin.
The glucose blood test is typically used to diagnose and monitor prediabetes, diabetes (Type 1, Type 2, and gestational), hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia.
Fasting is required for the blood glucose test. You should not consume food or beverages other than water for at least 8 hours before testing glucose levels.
