Glucose Tests

A blood glucose test measures the amount of glucose in your blood. It may be used to help diagnose or monitor diabetes.

What is a Blood Glucose Test ?

A blood glucose test measures the glucose levels in your blood. Glucose is a type of sugar. It is your body's main source of energy. A hormone called insulin helps move glucose from your bloodstream into your cells. Too much or too little glucose in the blood can be a sign of a serious medical condition. High blood glucose levels (hyperglycemia) may be a sign of diabetes, a disorder that can cause heart disease, blindness, kidney failure and other complications. Low blood glucose levels (hypoglycemia) can also lead to major health problems, including brain damage, if not treated.

Healthy Lifestyle Recommendations

If you're taking medication to manage your glocose levels are abnormal, we'd recommend the same lifestyle recommendations below. Continue with your current regimen, unless your provider reaches out to tell you otherwise.
  • Try a Mediterranean diet with a heavy focus on fiber (vegetables, whole grains, legumes) and cooking with olive oil.
  • Eat healthy fats like olive oil, fatty fish, avocado, nuts, seeds, and grass-fed meat and dairy. Avoid hydrogenated trans fat.
  • While exercise recommendations change often, One Medical suggests aiming for at least 30 minutes of aerobic exercise five times a week.
  • Make natural or minimally processed foods the basis of your diet.
  • Fill half of your plate with fruits and vegetables at every meal.
  • Treat any food as dessert if it includes any form of sugar in the first few ingredients (this includes sugar, high fructose corn syrup, organic evaporated cane juice, agave nectar, and honey).
  • Eliminate tobacco use.
