FBS, or fasting blood sugar, analyzes blood sugar levels following an overnight fast (without eating). Fasting blood sugar levels of 99 mg/dL or less are considered normal, 100 to 125 mg/dL suggest prediabetes, and 126 mg/dL or more suggest diabetes [1]. Low fasting blood glucose levels, or hypoglycemia, are below 70 mg/dL (3.9 mmol/L), Hyperglycemia, or an increase in fasting blood glucose, is a sign that someone is at higher risk of developing diabetes. It also called fasting blood plasma glucose (FPG). Mean FPG is utilized as a proxy for both the promotion of healthy diets and behaviors and the management of diabetes at the national level [2]. High fasting blood sugar was one of the major contributing factors. More than 41 million deaths annually, or 71% of all fatalities worldwide [3] . Diet is a significant modifiable risk factor, and dietary changes have the potential to significantly lower disease incidence and mortality [4]. Diseases are caused by a combination of genetic, environmental, and behavioral risk factors. A study found no correlation between marital status and pre-diabetes or FBS [5]. Married men were less likely to have several risk factors, including hypertension, high FBS, and high HbA1c [6]. An further study found no connection between depressive symptoms and higher fasting blood glucose [7].
