Diabetes Test: Blood Sugar Level Test
A diabetes profile test is a routine blood sugar test that is used to diagnose the condition known as diabetes. Diabetes is a condition in which the body is unable to properly process glucose, resulting in high blood sugar levels. The test is used to determine whether or not a person has diabetes and to what extent.At Grace Laboratory, we offer three tests to diagnose diabetes: FBS, PPBS, and HbA1C.
The FBS test, or fasting blood sugar test, measures the amount of sugar in your blood after you have fasted for at least 12 hours.
The PPBS test, or postprandial blood sugar test, measures the amount of sugar in your blood 12 hours after you have eaten a meal.
The HbA1C test, or glycated hemoglobin test, measures the amount of sugar in your blood over the past 3 months.
Note: It is essential to observe a 12 hour fast before you blood sugar level test.
