Fasting Blood Sugar Test Overview:
A fasting blood sugar (FBS) test is used to measure the amount of glucose (sugar) present in your blood after fasting for a whole night or 8 hours. This test is employed to watch individuals with diabetes. The fasting blood sugar test is the most commonly prescribed test for diabetes and it is the simplest and fastest test.

List of parameters considered during Fasting Blood Sugar Test:
The level of glucose (sugar) in your blood after about 8 hours of fasting is the only parameter this test evaluates. However, for a more accurate assessment of the body's response to sugar intake, this test is sometimes combined with a post-meal (post-prandial) blood sugar level assessment. For a fasting blood glucose test, a reading between 70 and 110 mg/dL is considered normal.
Understanding Fasting Blood Sugar Test Results:
High FBS levels can be interpreted as follows:
Fasting blood sugar levels between 100 mg/dL and 125 mg/dL are typically a sign of prediabetes. This shows that even though your blood sugar levels are higher than the normal value, you are not yet diabetic. However, a value such as the above requires immediate attention and a professional opinion to prevent the occurrence of diabetes.
A blood sugar level of 126 mg/dL or greater allows the doctor to conclude the presence of diabetes.
Other causes of high blood sugar levels can be the presence of pituitary disease, certain tumours, overactive thyroid or stress.
Lower-than-normal blood sugar levels could mean that a diabetic medication dose has to be reduced or that too much insulin is being produced in your body. In addition, conditions affecting the pituitary, thyroid, liver, or kidneys, as well as weight loss, a poor diet, and strenuous activity, can result in low blood sugar levels.
If you have abnormal fasting blood sugar levels, you must consult your doctor.
If your levels are high, the doctor may ask you to take the test once more to ensure accurate results. If the results are suggestive of prediabetes, your doctor may recommend taking the fasting blood sugar test every year or two.
