There are several tests to measure an individual’s blood sugar level. It is best to order tests recommended by a general practitioner or family doctor. A fasting glucose test is often recommended for people who do not have a family history of diabetes or lead a healthy lifestyle. On the other hand, individuals at higher risk of diabetes are advised to have an HbA1c test. The most comprehensive way to measure your blood sugar is to get a full-profile diabetes screening test with a full body screening.
