Blood glucose level

The concentration of glucose ("blood sugar") in the bloodstream. Blood glucose (plasma) levels are usually determined after an overnight fast but can also be determined randomly or at set times after the ingestion of glucose. A fasting plasma glucose (FPG) level of <100 mg/dL is considered normal based on clinical recommendations from the American Diabetes Association. Elevated levels of glucose may be indicative of diabetes. See fasting plasma glucose test, hyperglycemia, oral glucose tolerance test.
