Blood Glucose (Fasting) test is a simple blood test that measures the level of glucose (sugar) in your blood after you have fasted for at least 8 hours. This test is commonly used to diagnose and monitor diabetes, a condition in which the body has high levels of glucose in the blood.
Blood Glucose PP (Postprandial) test is a blood test that measures the level of glucose (sugar) in your blood after you have eaten a meal. This test is used to monitor blood glucose levels in individuals with diabetes, as well as to diagnose gestational diabetes in pregnant women
During the both these tests, a healthcare provider will take a sample of your blood. The blood sample will be 2 hours after you have eaten a meal in Blood Glucose PP. The sample is sent to the laboratory for analysis
If your fasting or postprandial blood glucose level is higher than normal, it may indicate that you have diabetes or gestational diabetes. Your healthcare provider may recommend further testing to confirm a diagnosis and develop a treatment plan.
