What are normal blood glucose levels?
What to do when your blood glucose is too low. The amount of glucose ("sugar", measured in mg / dl) in the blood changes during the day and at night. Your levels will change depending on when, what and how much you have eaten, and whether or not you have exercised.
Normal blood sugars
A normal fasting level (without food for eight hours) in the blood is between 70 and 99 mg / dL
A normal blood sugar level two hours after eating is less than 140 mg / dL
Diabetes is diagnosed by any of the following:
Two consecutive tests of fasting blood glucose that are equal to or greater than 126 mg / dL
Any random blood glucose greater than 200 mg / dL
An A1c test that is equal to or greater than 6.5 percent. A1c is an easy blood test that gives an average of three months of blood sugar
A two-hour oral glucose tolerance test with any value greater than 200 mg / dL
Sometimes you may have symptoms of fatigue, excessive urination or thirst, or unplanned weight loss. However, often people do not have symptoms of high blood glucose and find a diagnosis of astonishing diabetes.
My doctor says I have pre-diabetes. What is that?
You are at high risk for developing diabetes. It can prevent or delay diabetes by increasing physical activity, eating healthy foods and maintaining or losing weight
Pre-diabetes is also known as impaired fasting glucose (IFG)
Pre-diabetes is diagnosed by any of the following:
Fasting blood glucose between 100-125 mg / dL
An A1c between 5.7 – 6.4 percent
Any value between 140 mg / dL and 199 mg / dL during a two-hour oral test with 75 g glucose tolerance
