Check the "Border": Unfortunately I have a little bad news....And them some more bad news. The bright side is at least you'll know. Your "borderline" blood sugar is considered diabetic whether it is fasting (126 or above) or 2hrs after meal (200 or above). Either way, i don't think you should take your chances on an otc medication....They usually don't control sugars at this level. Your medical hx is to risky.

Few: Best to focus on diet and exercise. Otc agents are unreliable in purity and effect.
