Glucose is the primary sugar found in your blood. This test can be part of a general wellness exam, or be ordered to screen for diabetes.

What is this test?

Glucose, also known as blood sugar, enters the body through the food we eat. Our bodies' cells use it for energy. Insulin, a hormone produced in the pancreas, is responsible for transporting glucose throughout to your cells. Your provider may order a Glucose Blood Test as part of your routine health exam, to screen for diabetes, or to monitor current diabetes treatment.

Frequently asked questions

Your provider may order a blood test for glucose to diagnose diabetes or to monitor your current diabetes treatment. It is also typically ordered as part of a routine health exam.

Once you receive the results of your blood test for glucose, you will need to consult with your provider. Only a medical professional can advise you on your glucose levels and help you develop a treatment plan if necessary. 

Age alone does not determine whether you will have a high or low glucose reading. However, lifestyle changes that frequently coincide with age, such as becoming less active, can contribute to changes in glucose levels. A blood test for glucose will help you determine whether or not your levels are where they should be for your age.

Special requirements for the Glucose Blood Test include fasting for 9-12 hours prior to sample collection. Your provider will draw a blood sample from a vein in your arm. Glucose Blood Test results typically take 1-2 business days to process.
