Health Risks

Glucose Level During Fasting

With the help of insulin, the body maintains a tight control of the blood glucose level throughout the day.

DEMO Result

Based on your genetics, your personal predicted risk is

normal


Your risk for Glucose Level During Fasting also depends on other factors, including lifestyle and genetic variants not covered by this test.

How To Use This Test


This test SHOULD NOT be used to diagnose Glucose Level During Fasting or any other health conditions.


Please talk to a healthcare professional if you have a family history, if you think you might have this condition or if you have any concerns about your results.

Intended Uses

This predicted personal genetic risk merely considers the genetic/genotype effect towards the disease in an individual without taking into account the environmental factors such as lifestyles, diet and their environment

This result is based on the SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphism) that are associated with Glucose Level During Fasting.

Lifestyle & Other Risk Factors Can Influence The Risk of Developing Glucose level during fasting

Genetics are NOT the only risk factor for Glucose Level During Fasting.

Glucose Level During Fasting is believed to be caused by a combination of environmental, genetic and lifestyle factors. Now that you have learnt about your genetic risk, you can determine how aggressively you need to make lifestyle changes to reduce your risk.

The earlier in your life that you commit to living a healthy lifestyle, the more you can reduce your risk for or delay the development of Glucose Level During Fasting.

Suggested Lifestyle Changes

Lifestyle Recommendations

1

Regular exercise can help you lose weight and increase insulin sensitivity. Increased insulin sensitivity means your cells are better able to use the available sugar in your bloodstream.

Dietary Recommendations

1

Control carbohydrate intake. When you eat too many carbs or have problems with insulin function, this process fails and blood glucose levels rise.

2

Ensure adequate fiber intake. Fiber slows carb digestion and sugar absorption, which help promotes a more gradual rise in blood sugar levels.

3

Choose food with low glycaemic index, for example meat, eggs, oats, barley, beans, lentils, legumes, sweet potatoes, corn, yams, most fruits and non-starchy vegetables.

What Is Glucose Level During Fasting
and How Can It Affect You

What is Glucose Level During Fasting

Blood glucose level refers to the amount of glucose present in blood. Glucose is simple sugar and is the primary source of energy which is essential for normal body function. With the help of insulin, the body maintains a tight control of the blood glucose level through out the day, even when you go through different stages of eating and hunger. Glucose levels are usually lowest in the morning, before the first meal of the day, and rises after meals for an hour or two.Having consistently high fasting plasma glucose levels are associated with a risk of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

Symptoms Of Irregular Fasting Blood Glucose

Symptoms of having low fasting blood glucose:
Trembling, palpitations, sweating, anxiety, hunger, nausea and tingling, difficulty in concentrating, confusion, weakness, drowsiness, vision changes, difficulty speaking, headache, dizziness and tiredness.

Symptoms of having HIGH fasting blood glucose:
excessive urination, excessive thirst, weight loss, lethargy, issues with nerve or spinal cord or brain function

If you have a family history of this condition or think you have the symptoms, consult with a healthcare professional.
