Glucose or sugar in the blood refers to an important energy source the tissues and cells of human body need. A fasting blood sugar test can measure the amount of glucose in blood after you have fasted for at least eight hours or overnight.
You should have a level of 60 to 99 mg/dl, which is the normal range for fasting glucose. If you have a level higher than 100, you have to be alert of being diabetic. Nevertheless, further tests must be performed to decide whether or not you suffer from diabetes.
Blood Urea Nitrogen (BUN) and Creatinine
BUN can measure the amount of urea nitrogen in the blood in addition to testing your kidney function. A blood sample is taken from a vein in the arm. You have a normal range of BUN when you have a level of 7 to 20 mg/dl. When it comes to having a higher result, you might have renal problems.
Creatinine detects the functions of your kidneys. A blood sample or a urine test is taken to perform creatinine test. The creatinine level will increase if the renal function is in trouble.
SGOT, SGPT, and Gamma Glutamyltransferase (GGT)
Life insurance companies will require SGOT, SGPT, and GGT tests to ensure your liver works normally. The liver produces enzymes like SGOT, SGPT, and GGT, which can indicate liver problems if those enzymes have higher levels.
Total Bilirubin test is performed to find any symptoms of liver damage, liver disease, or bile duct blockage. Life insurance companies will need to know about this blood test.
