Hello again. A fasting morning blood test for blood sugar is standard. There is another blood test, non-fasting, which can be taken at any time of the day called the HbA1c or A1c for short. This measures the average of your blood sugar over the prior three months. Keep in mind that the acceptable results for these tests are dictated here in the US by the American Diabetes Association (ADA), and if you're elsewhere the national institute of health in your country also sets that standard. Please click on the link in my signature which goes to a website that discusses everything about
blood sugar including information from studies that our ADA guidelines are actually too high to avoid diabetes complications over time.
The only blood test that can definitively say if a person is diabetic (or at the very least that he or she does not metabolize carbs normally) is the GTT, the Glucose Tolerance Test in which you drink a very highly sugary liquid on an empty stomach and your blood is tested at one hour and two hours.
Is there a reason you suspect you might have diabetes?
