Diabetic Risk Assessment

Diabetes is a disease, that a lot of times, doesn’t manifest itself as a recognizable symptom. In such a case, you might have Diabetes and yet not be aware of it. Why be in such a situation when all it takes is a simple Diabetic Risk Assessment test?

We at Family Medical Center - Pembroke Pines, perform blood glucose tests to check your average blood sugar levels. Before coming for a diabetic risk assessment, we recommend our patients to fast overnight. The test we perform is called Fasting Blood Sugar Test. A fasting blood sugar level of 100 mg/dL or less is considered normal. If your blood sugar level is between 100 to 125 mg/dL, it is considered prediabetes and a level beyond 125mg/dL in two separate tests confirms diabetes.
