When I go to different labs for blood sugar tests then I see that different normal ranges for blood sugar are printed in their test reports.Also when I purchase test strips of different brands then this difference is observed in the information slip provided with the test strip packs.
Please,answer the following questions:
1.What is normal range for blood sugar in the case of i)FBS,ii)PPBS and iii)RBS?
2.What are min & max of overall safe range of blood sugar?
And there is a doubt that If blood sugar usually reaches at its max within 1 hr after taking the meal then why are PPBS & FBS usually tested after 2 hrs and 8 hrs of meal respectively?
Please suggest that if I am going to test blood sugar at home using glucometer then when should it be tested?Is there any preference required in the selection of hand and finger?
