SCREENING TESTS TO DIAGNOSE PREDIABETES

Prediabetes can be considered as a warning bell that diabetes can soon present itself.1 Thus, it is important to check your blood glucose levels periodically.

TESTS TO DETECT PREDIABETES

Your physician can conduct one of the three blood tests for you, namely the fasting plasma glucose test, the oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT), or the A1C test to diagnose prediabetes.2

  • Fasting Plasma Glucose test (FPG):

    It measures your blood sugar after you had an 8-hour fast. If the test reveals that your blood sugar level is between 100 and 125 mg/dL, it shows that you have prediabetes.2,3
  • Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT):

    It measures your blood sugar 2 hours after you have a sweet drink. If the test reveals that your blood sugar level is between 140 and 199 mg/dL, it shows that you have prediabetes.2,3
  • Hemoglobin A1C test:

    It observes your average blood sugar for the past 2-3 months. If the test reading reveals a percentage of the hemoglobin A1C between 5.7% and 6.4%, it shows that you have prediabetes.2,3
