The fasting Blood Sugar test (FBS) is used to measure the level of glucose in a fasting state (8 to 12 hours) when your blood sugar should be ideally lowest. This test gives us a clue about how the blood sugar level is managed. It is a simple and convenient way of diagnosing Diabetes or checking whether it is in control.
An intravenous blood sample is used for blood sugar testing, and 8 to 12 hours of fasting is recommended.

The main source of glucose is the food we consume, whereas, in the case of fasting, the liver produces and releases glucose in the bloodstream. On the other hand, insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas that helps regulate blood glucose levels and the transport of glucose molecules from the blood to cells.
Conditions like diabetes or Insulin resistance are asymptomatic in the initial stage and may impose severe health impacts in later stages. Monitoring blood glucose levels helps avoid and prevent such serious health problems.
A fasting blood glucose test measures your blood sugar after fasting overnight (8-12 hours). HbA1c test results reflect the average amount of sugar attached to hemoglobin over the duration of 2 to 3 months.
Have you noticed high blood sugar in the morning? It is known as the ‘Dawn effect’- An abnormal increase in the blood sugar level usually between 2am to 8am. This is believed to be an effect of other hormones (called counter regulatory hormones) that increase insulin resistance. This could also happen in diabetic cases where the diabetic medication was missed or the insulin/medication dose was not proper.
The alternative names for Fasting Blood Sugar (FBS) test are Fasting Plasma Glucose (FPG) and Fasting Blood Glucose (FBG).
