Diagnosis of Juvenile Diabetes
There are numerous tests available to diagnose diabetes which can be done with the advice of your physician.
- Urine test: - A urine sample will help us to detect glucose and ketones (acids that release in the blood and urine when the body uses fat instead of glucose for energy).
- Blood test: - It is used to measure the amount of glucose present in the bloodstream
- Glucose-tolerance test: - checks the body's ability to process glucose. Sugar levels in the blood and urine are monitored for 3 hours after drinking a large dose of sugar solution.
- Fasting blood sugar: - It involves fasting overnight and blood being drawn the next morning.
