99504-3Glucose [Mass/volume] in Interstitial fluidActive

Term Description

The glucose value typically reported from a continuous glucose monitor (CGM) device. Multiple readings are taken over a period of time. To report the average of the readings, use Average glucose [Mass/volume] in Interstitial fluid during Reporting Period [LOINC:97507-8].

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.
