Glucose, Plasma Blood Test

* This is not a home test kit. You will need to visit a local lab for testing.

Description

Use:

A plasma glucose blood test is necessary to diagnose, or screen and monitor the current treatment of diabetes. Levels of glucose are elevated in diabetics, and levels may be low in case of inappropriate diabetic treatment or while fasting/dieting.

Glucose is a simple sugar that serves as the main source of energy for the body. Most of the body’s cells require glucose for energy production; brain and nervous system cells not only rely on glucose for energy, but they can also only function when glucose levels in the blood remain above a certain level. 

Common symptoms of diabetes include:

  • Extreme hunger
  • Extreme thirst
  • Frequent urination
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Fatigue or drowsiness
  • Blurry vision
  • Slow-healing wounds, sores, or bruises
  • Dry, itchy skin
  • Tingling or numbness in the hands or feet
  • Frequent or recurring skin, gum, bladder, or vaginal yeast infections

Recommended For:

Diabetes mellitus work-up, family history of diabetes, monitoring efficiency of diabetes treatment.
