Introduction: Diagnosis of diabetes is based on clinical sign &amp; symptom and laboratory findings. Fasting plasma glucose analysis is the most important method for determination of diabetic patients. Due to invasiveness and stress of doing this method for evaluation of glycemia in diabetic patients, recently, the use of salivary glucose as a simple and non-invasive method came into significant consideration for specialists. The aim of this research is to evaluate FPG amount by salivary glucose in diabetic patients. Materials &amp; Methods: This cross sectional study was done on 150 diabetic patients. After collection of saliva and blood samples in a fasting state, the FPG level was measured by GOD-PAP method and FSG level was measured by Glucose oxidase/peroxidase method. The statistical analysis was done by Pearson correlation and regression test. Results: The average of FSG and FPG were 6.10 and 158.61 respectively. The correlation coefficients between FPG and FSG was 0.593 (P<0.001). Conclusion: This study showed that there is a significant linear relationship between FPG and FSG. Therefore, FSG amounts can be used as a non- invasive method to detect FPG.
