Huh?: If you are not diabetic why are you measuring bg three times around your meal? You are asking for trouble. Stick with the standard method of diagnosis. You are not at risk for organ damage until you become diabetic range and should not do anything other than eat a good mediterranean diet, maintain a healthy weight and exercise regularly.

Blood Glucose Level: Hi, your blood glucose results reveal normal levels. If your family history is positive for diabetes or you have had gestational diabetes during pregnancy, you may be at greater risk of developing diabetes later.. Avoid simple carbohydrates and empty calorie foods. Eat a diet with lots of protein, fiber, complex carbs , and small amount of "good" fats, exercise regularly and see your pcp annually.
