Description -

A random blood sugar plasma test determines the blood sugar irrespective of when you last ate. This test, along with a physical examination, is used to detect diabetes but not prediabetes. A random blood glucose test is prescribed by a doctor if he/she suspects any symptoms of high blood sugar levels in an individual.

Overview of the Random Blood Sugar Plasma Test

A random blood sugar plasma test is an effective and easiest option for doctors to get a quick result. The test is less effective at diagnosing diabetes in those with slightly high blood sugar levels, but it is effective in those with high blood sugar levels who may require treatment immediately. A random blood sugar test is therefore an effective test for diagnosing type 1 diabetes when a delay in diagnosis can result in a significant risk of severe conditions. A random blood sugar plasma test can help a health professional in determining whether further testing is required to make a thorough diagnosis.

I've never been the best at keeping track of my blood sugar levels, so I found it difficult to recognize when I needed to do something about them. I used Max Lab to get tested and there was no need for any medication since my levels were in a normal range. Now that I'm armed with this information, it's much easier for me to take care of myself.
