Postprandial Blood Sugar test (PPBS) is used to measure blood glucose level 2 hours after a meal. Blood sugar level increases post-meal and is brought back to normal by metabolic activity. However, in the case of diabetes, the sugar is not metabolised at an expected rate, and hence, PPBS testing helps understand how your body responds to food intake. This test also helps diagnose and monitor diabetes and keep track of overall diabetes management.
An intravenous blood sample is used for blood sugar testing, the sample should be collected 2 hours post intake of the meal.

The main source of glucose is the food we consume, whereas in case of fasting, the liver produces and releases glucose in the bloodstream. On the other hand, insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas that helps regulate blood glucose levels and transport glucose molecules from the blood to cells.
In most cases, conditions like diabetes or Insulin resistance remain asymptomatic in the early stages and may impose severe health impacts in later stages. Monitoring blood glucose levels helps avoid serious health problems.
It is recommended to check both blood sugar levels both pre and post-meal (FBS and PPBS). This helps us to check if our diabetes management plan is working properly.
The alternative names for Postprandial Blood Sugar (PPBS) test are Postprandial Plasma Glucose (PPPG) and Postprandial Blood Glucose (PPBG).
