Spanish term or phrase: glicemia
Es un análisis de sangre con un detalle de los elementos. Entre ellos, "glicemia pre" y "glicemia post". Pensé que "glycemia" sería lo lógico. Consulté varios diccionarios médicos y no aparece el término, ni parecido, ni en inglés ni en castellano. Tampoco está en Eurodicautom.

glycemia (glycaemia is a slightly more Latinized variant)
Explanation:
This is a diabetic state in which you can have too much sugar in the bloodstream (hyperglycemia) or too little (hypoglycemia, my mother died of it. This latter is also known as insulin shock, in which the insulin that supposedly regulates diabetes increases above a tolerable level).

blood sugar [or blood-sugar level]


Explanation:
I recently did a translation on a diabetes medication, and this is what I came up with for "glicemia" in consultation with the client. It seems to be more neutral, without expecting a hypo- or hyper- prefix.

agree  splice: That's the term I'd use for patients; Glycemia for physicians.
