Fasting Blood Glucose

Alternate Names : FBS, Fasting Blood Sugar

Fasting Blood Glucose | Preparation & Expectations | Results and Values

What do the test results mean?

The fasting blood glucose in a person without diabetes should be 110 mg/dL or less.

  • If the result is higher than 110 mg/dL but less than 126 mg/dl, the diagnosis of impaired fasting glucose or pre-diabetes can be made.
  • If the result is 126 mg/dL or higher, then another test should be done to confirm a diagnosis of diabetes.
