About this package
The postprandial blood sugar determines the glucose concentration 2 hours after having breakfast/ lunch. Blood sugar levels usually begin to rise 10-15 minutes after a meal and reach their peak after an hour. The pancreas produces the hormone insulin, which aids in the absorption of sugar from the bloodstream into the body cells. This test is used to assess how the body reacts to sugar and starch after eating a meal. Doctors recommend this test if your blood sugar continues to be excessively high or extremely low. Blood sugar levels in people who do not have diabetes normally return to normal within 2 hours. This test is available at a discounted rate, along with the home collection.

FAQ

Random blood sugar (RBS) test measures the level of glucose in the blood sample at any given time. In case of diabetic and prediabetic patients, glucose levels are subject to vary throughout the day. Diagnosing such abnormal changes in your RBS level suggests the need to change your diabetes management plan which can also help in reducing the potential risk of diabetic complications.

An intravenous blood sample is used for the analysis; fasting is not required for this test.

Metabolic profile, Diabetic profile, HbA1C

The main source of glucose is the food we consume, whereas, in the 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 the transport of glucose molecules from the blood to cells.

RBS test is significant for speedy diagnosis and in emergency conditions, e.g., hospitalization, since it does not require any special preparation like fasting. A follow-up test can be recommended by a physician in case your glucose level is higher than expected.

Red blood cells carry a protein called hemoglobin that carries oxygen. When hemoglobin attaches to glucose molecules in the blood, it becomes glycated to form HbA1c. When a blood glucose test measures the level of your blood sugar, the HbA1c test reflects the average amount of sugar attached to hemoglobin over the duration of 2 to 3 months.

The random Blood Sugar (RBS) test is also called Random Plasma Glucose (RPG) and Random Blood Glucose (RBG).
