Less than 60: Normal fasting level 60-99 (some labs have 65-110)...But any less than 60 is hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). Any random level above 200 is highly indicative of diabetes.. Read the owners manual for instruction on how to interpret the readings... When in doubt, consult your doc... Good luck.
