A blood sugar test is a procedure that measures the amount of glucose in a person’s blood. People with diabetes can also use this test to track their condition. In 2010, 35.7% of adults and 16.9% of children have been diagnosed with obesity. In 2017-2018, the US obesity prevalence was 42.4%. Obesity related conditions include heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer. Screening the glucose level along with their medications can help patients delay the effects of diabetes.
