  The blood glucose test is the measurement of the amount of glucose, the sugars broken down from complex carbohydrates that you eat, in your bloodstream. You can have your blood sugar taken after fasting, two hours after you have eaten, or randomly. Blood glucose is tested normally to monitor and diagnose diabetes, or if you have low blood sugar and hypoglycemia.
