Term Description

Whole blood glucose levels measured prior to a meal (e.g. 2 hours prior) and often by a glucose meter. Glucose meters provide rapid analysis of blood glucose levels and to help manage both hypoglycemic and hyperglycemic disorders with the goal of adjusting glucose to a near-normal range.[PMID: 20144348]

Part Description

LP14635-4   Glucose
Glucose (C6H12O6) is a simple monosaccharide and monomer of carbohydrates. Glucose provides energy for cellular processes and aids metabolism within the body. When food is ingested, the carbohydrates within the food are broken down into glucose molecules. Blood glucose content is significant in determining an individual's overall state of health. An elevated blood glucose level is called hyperglycemia and a deficient blood glucose level is called hypoglycemia. When an individual is hyperglycemic and cannot properly regulate their blood glucose level they are considered diabetic. Type 1 diabetes is caused by the immune system attacking pancreatic beta cells (cells that produce insulin) and Type 2 diabetes is caused by insulin resistance.
