  • Fasting Blood Sugar: Measures the blood glucose levels after an overnight fast. The test is typically done in the morning before the individual has eaten anything. It provides the baseline measure of blood glucose without the influence of recent food intake and is essential for diagnosing diabetes and prediabetes.
  • Random Blood Sugar: Measures blood glucose levels at any time of the day, regardless of when person last ate. It provides immediate blood glucose levels and is useful for diagnosing diabetes, especially when symptoms are present.
  • Post Prandial Blood Sugar: Measures blood glucose levels after eating, usually 2 hours after the start of a meal. It evaluates how effectively body handles glucose after eating. Helps in managing and monitoring diabetes, as it reflects the body’s response to food intake.
