Different Types of Diabetes Blood Tests: Fasting Glucose, A1C, and Oral Glucose Tolerance Tests

Diabetes is on the rise in the UK, with more people than ever diagnosed with it each year. It’s estimated that over 5 million people are currently living with diabetes and up to 850,000 of them may not even know it. The only way to diagnose diabetes is through a blood test that measures your blood sugar (glucose) levels. Getting an accurate diagnosis through blood work is essential for diabetics to effectively manage their condition.
