Glucose test using urine StrictionBP Review sample is another way too. The glucose that can be found in urine is called glucosuria or glycosuria where the healthcare provider asks to stop the use of drugs since that might affect the test results. Such healthcare provider usually checks the urine sample done through catching the urine specimen using a sensitive color pad or a dipstick. Such pad contains chemicals that react to glucose's presence. So basically, the color of the dipstick will change and will tell how much glucose there is. Through traditional blood glucose monitoring, it requires test strips, small needles or lancets then a recording pad. The process goes as pricking your finger using lancet and then place the blood drop to the special strip to determine the glucose amount found in the blood. Meter will be displayed in digital numbers. Usually, blood sugar level's normal if it registers in between 70 to 150mg. The level will change due to many factors including the time of taking the meal or if there was no meal intake at all. You will not be considered as diabetic only until the level of the blood sugar will follow overnight fasting above 126mg/dL. For example you have 115mg/dL. Most probably you assume that you already have diabetes knowing the fact that it is above the normal range. No, you don't. It is rather suitable to call it pre-diabetes or impaired fasting glucose or impaired glucose tolerance. The dangers associated with above or below the range come in process. If it is below 70, then the condition will be called as hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). Once you are diagnosed with pre-diabetes, it happens to be just as step ahead of those who already are diabetic. It simply means that you have still the chance of lowering the level of your sugar.
