- Help diagnose diabetes

- Monitor glucose levels in persons with diabetes

Depending on the purpose of testing, glucose may be measured on a fasting basis (collected after an 8- to 10-hour fast), randomly (anytime), post prandial (after a meal), and/or as part of an oral glucose challenge or tolerance test (OGTT / GTT).

From 70 to 99 mg/dL (3.9 to 5.5 mmol/L) Normal fasting glucose
From 100 to 125 mg/dL (5.6 to 6.9 mmol/L) Impaired fasting glucose (pre-diabetes)
