A 41-year-old member asked:
I'm not a diabetic and i thought i'm gonna test my blood sugars and they were 5.9 mmol, is that good?

5.9 mmol/l is at the: High end of normal, particularly if it was a finger-stick rather than lab draw. If you're overweight and have a family history of diabetes, you need education, diet, exercise, weight loss and a visit w/your doctor.
