Diabetes Diagnosis is made on the basis of examination of glucose levels in the blood, not the presence of glucose in urine. To determine the first DM diagnosis, recommended blood glucose checks with material from the blood veins (called venous plasma). This means that blood sampling is done with a small syringe or needle (needle wing) with a glass tube, checked with a relatively large mesian analysis, contained laboratory facility.
For the purpose of further monitoring of blood glucose, blood can be checked from the material of capillary blood vessels, usually done by pricking the fingertip small lancet needle automatically. A drop of blood samples was enough to be attached to the end of the strip / checker reagent strips that attach to the portable blood glucose testing tool, cell phone-sized or smaller. People with diabetes can check yourself himself in this way without Antuan from others, therefore also called self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG).
Below are the details of blood glucose test results to determine whether or not including DM. Fasting blood glucose means no caloric intake at least 8 hours before the blood test.
Blood sugar checks by consensus Perkeni 2006:
When blood glucose levels, if the DM is greater than or equal to 200 mg / dL.
Fasting blood glucose levels, if the DM is greater than or equal to 126 mg / dL.
