Fasting blood glucose test

A fasting blood glucose test is a test which can be used for diagnosis of Diabetes or Pre-Diabetes. In Diabetics, the test also reflects whether their Diabetes has been controlled well.

The test is done several hours after fasting.

How is a fasting blood glucose test performed?
