Border borderline: Normal fasting blood sugar is 99 or less; 100 or more is considered borderline diabetes so this is borderline borderline and certainly higher than optimal for a 24 yo. Rather than worry, take steps to improve it- literally by taking steps (exercise helps) & eating less sugars & starches (esp. Grains).
