In brief: FPG
Fasting plasma glucose test is a preferred test that measures blood sugar levels.
It is less expensive, convenient and easy to do. There are also hemoglobin A1c tests and oral glucose tolerance tests.

In brief: Try Pre-DX
The relatively new tests that use a multiplicity of diabetic "biomarkers" are very useful in accessing a person's potential for dm. These tests use a farely complex approach (mathematical analysis) to markers which analyze fat, carbohydrate and protein healthy metabolism. You get a score which your provider can "interpret" and give you an better informed approach to diabetes prevention.
