Description

Use:

Glucose is a simple sugar that serves as the main source of energy for the body. Insulin, which is a hormone, helps move glucose from the bloodstream into cells. Too much or too little glucose in the blood can be a sign of a serious medical condition.

A serum glucose blood test can be used to find out if your blood sugar levels are in the healthy range. Both high (hyperglycemia) and low (hypoglycemia) blood sugar levels require immediate attention.

    Symptoms of high blood glucose levels include:

  • Increased thirst
  • More frequent urination
  • Blurred vision
  • Fatigue
  • Wounds that are slow to heal
    Symptoms of low blood glucose levels include:

  • Anxiety
  • Sweating
  • Trembling
  • Hunger
  • Confusion

The measurement of glucose in serum is not recommended for the diagnosis of diabetes; a plasma glucose blood test is better for diagnosing diabetes.

Recommended For:

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

Special Notes:

Fasting for 12 hours is a must.
