How to Measure Fasting Blood Sugar


The hormone insulin regulates the concentration of sugar in the blood, or glucose, in the body. People with diabetes do not produce insulin or their body does not respond well to insulin, so their blood sugar tends to stay high. This can negatively affect the internal organs and cause a series of health problems. Your fasting blood sugar tests your glucose after you have not eaten for at least 8 hours, and it is a way to control your diabetes and monitor the progress of the disease and its treatment. You can make your fasting blood sugar level easily analyzed in your doctor's office and understand your results. You can even test yourself at home with the right equipment.
