This is test that measures blood glucose regardless of when you last had a meal. Random testing is useful because glucose levels in healthy people do not vary widely through out the day so glucose levels that vary widely may mean a problem.
No specific patient preparation protocol required. Inform your doctor if you are on any medications or have any underlying medical conditions or allergies before undergoing this test.
Glucose is the primary energy source for the body’s cells and the only energy source for the brain and nervous system. A steady supply must be available for use, and a relatively constant level of glucose must be maintained in the blood. A random blood sugar test is used to measure the amount of glucose (sugar) in your blood without any fasting conditions. In this test, the blood is drawn randomly at any point of time in a day.
To determine if your blood glucose level is within a healthy range; to screen for and diagnose diabetes and prediabetes and to monitor for high blood glucose (hyperglycemia) or low blood glucose (hypoglycemia)
