Can you please define normal blood glucose numbers three hours after eating?

Fasting normal: 65-105 when drawn out of a vein while fasting. Various authorities have different "normal" levels. There are, however, no exact cut-offs, it's all a continuium. Finger sticks are not accurate enough for diagnosis. Two hour post meal should be less than 130-140, and any glucose >200 at any time suggests diabetes. An a1c >6% is also suggestive and needs further evaluation. See diabetes.Org for info. ...Read more

My morning blood glucose numbers are typically around 105-110, but my a1c's are between 5.5-5.7. Can this be "normal" or is this "pre-diabetic"?

My morning blood glucose numbers are typically around 105-110, but my a1c's are between 5.5-5.7. Can this be "normal" or is this "pre-diabetic"?

It is borderline: A hemoglobin A1c of 5.7 is borderline between normal and prediabetes. I think it should be watched carefully. I would try to eat a good diet and have it checked periodically by your doctor. Do not ignore this. Good luck. ...Read more

I received a blood glucose test about a month ago, and my number came up at 150. I went back today after a 12hr fast, and was 108. Am I pre-diabetic?

I received a blood glucose test about a month ago, and my number came up at 150. I went back today after a 12hr fast, and was 108. Am I pre-diabetic?

Maybe (not) . . .: Pre-diabetes is a great term but definitions are rather loose. If checking glucose, best to draw blood after fasting all night long. Normal result should be less than 100. Impaired fasting glucose is 100-125. Diabetes is higher. Or check A1c which gives info re average sugar over past 3 months. Normal is less than 5.7. 5.7-64 is pre-diabetes or at elevated risk. Higher is consistent w/diabetes. ...Read more

Is it a concern to have a glucose number at 94 and somewhat high glucose in urine? I don't feel bad. Also what does a high red blood cell count mean?

Is it a concern to have a glucose number at 94 and somewhat high glucose in urine? I don't feel bad. Also what does a high red blood cell count mean?

Incomplete info: Random or fasting blood glucose of 94 is not abnormal. If it was fasting, you need to be careful. High glucose in urine is of concern, even with "normal" blood glucose. How high is the blood count? PCOS is one of the risk factors for diabetes. It would be prudent to discuss these items with your doctor. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more
