This study aimed to determine the correlation between age, blood pressure, and body mass index with fasting blood glucose. This study was a quantitative research with cross-sectional design. This study involved 88 respondents. Fasting blood glucose using spectrophotometers method collected by medical analysts of a laboratory of dr Rasidin Hospital. Statistical calculation was done using simple linear regression. The result showed the average of blood glucose levels were 177.31 mg/dl. There was a significant positive correlation between age, blood pressure, body mass index and fasting blood glucose (P <0.001). Food habits and regular physical activity may prevent high blood pressure and high body mass index. It may help in prompt treatment or future preventive complications.
