Glucose testing is often ordered as part of routine general health blood work. It can also be used to help screen a person who is at risk for Diabetes even if they are not experiencing any symptoms. Glucose testing can also be used to monitor people with Diabetes.

A glucose lab test is also included in a Basic Metabolic Panel, a Comprehensive Metabolic Panel, and a Renal Function Panel lab test.

Turnaround time for the Glucose test is typically 1 business day.
