Checking blood sugar levels can be done with various types of examinations, such as:
Blood sugar at the time, the examination is done on the spot without the need for special procedures. Fasting blood sugar, the examination is done by fasting beforehand to determine the basal blood sugar level in the body. Directional sugar 2 hours Post prandial, the examination is carried out 2 hours after being given a previous glucose load Generally every laboratory examination such as checking cholesterol, blood glucose and uric acid requires fasting first to know what normal values are in the body and will usually be carried out in the morning , because the body is in a basal state after rest. But this is adjusted to what examination will be carried out in order to get accurate results. In a fasting blood glucose test, it is necessary to fast 8-10 hours before the test. If you are scheduled to have your checkup around 8 am, you can start your fast between 10 or 12 pm. You can eat food under the following hours, but after the specified hours food consumption is stopped, unless you have drugs that must be taken you should consult your doctor first. Fasting for more than 12 hours is also not recommended because it will give inaccurate results. You should first consult your condition with your doctor so that the results obtained are accurate so that the diagnosis and treatment can be given correctly.
That's all I can say, hopefully enough to answer your question.
