Testing for diabetes with a Fasting Blood Sugar (FBS) test
The fasting blood sugar (FBS) test is done after an overnight fast or six hours after the last meal/snack. An FBS result of less than 100 mg/dL is normal, while a result of 100 to 125 mg/dL is considered prediabetes. A result of 126 mg/dL and above on two separate tests is enough to diagnose you with diabetes.
High levels of glucose in the blood – see from diagnostic bloodwork – means the body isn’t producing enough insulin for the cellular uptake of glucose. In result, there is constantly a high level of sugar circulating in the body, causing damage to tissue and slowing the healing process of the body. When the body doesn’t produce insulin at all, a person is diagnosed with type 1 diabetes (insulin dependent). If the body produces insulin but it isn’t enough or the cells have become resistant to it, a person is diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.
