Whether a person with diabetes Fasting Blood Glucose (FBG) measurement or Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT) performed is determined. FBG measurement of 100-125 mg / dl hidden sugar (pre-diabetes) signal. Measurement results FBG 126 mg / dl or more is indicative of the presence of diabetes.

Receiving in OGTT glucose-rich fluid is important that blood glucose level after 2 hours. The second hour blood glucose measurement from 140 to 199 mg / dL hidden sugar, 200 mg / dL or higher, the diabetes is diagnosed
