Well......: first, this argues strongly AGAINST being a diabetic in which case the reading AFTER A MEAL WITH SUGAR would be by definition be over 200. On the other hand, we see an increased rate of heart disease in those whose sugar is over 100. 105 is not necessarily over 100 due to some margin of error. formal testing to see if sugar tot. nl or not quite and if hi, metformin is indicated.
