List of parameters considered during Fasting Blood Sugar Test
This test measures only one parameter, which is the amount of glucose (sugar) in your blood after approximately 8 hours of fasting. However, this test is often accompanied by post-meal blood sugar level assessment to better gauge the body’s response towards sugar intake.
For a fasting blood glucose test, a reading between 70 and 110 mg/dL is considered normal.
Under Fasting Blood Sugar Test Results
FBS results can be interpreted as high or low.
High levels are:
100-125 mg/dL- This range of fasting blood sugar is usually indicative of prediabetes. This tells us that while your blood sugar levels are above average, they are still in the stage where diabetes can be prevented. The person is not considered diabetic but should start precautions against the same.
126 mg/dL and higher- This denotes an elevated blood sugar level. This is primarily used by doctors to mark the presence of diabetes. Other causes of high blood sugar levels can be the presence of pituitary disease, certain tumors, overactive thyroid or stress.
Blood sugar levels that are lower than the normal range may indicate that the dosage of a diabetes medication needs to be decreased or that too much insulin is being produced in the body.
Other causes of low blood sugar levels can be related to pituitary disease, underactive thyroid, liver or kidney disease, weight loss, poor diet or vigorous exercise.
It is best to consult a doctor for a better understanding of your FBS test results.
Your doctor may suggest a re-test to ensure accuracy if your FBS level is high. Your doctor would advise you to take the fasting blood sugar test once every year or two if the result indicates you have prediabetes. This helps to determine if you are developing Type 2 diabetes.
