Not necessarily: Congratulations! if you've been taking metformin ; it helped normalize your sugars, you can try stopping it to see if they remain normal (of course tell your doc). If you did not take it then i see no reason at all for you to start now. If everything is normal then you have successfully reversed diabetes ; are no longer diabetic! however, if you don't maintain these positive changes it will recur. ...Read more

Upper limit of norma: 100 is the upper limit of normal for fasting blood glucose (sugar), we usually recommend repeating a fasting sugar in some time from now and make sure it is not higher. 101 to 127 is pre diabetes and more than 127 is diabetes. There are other ways to see if you have diabetes, like calculating your average blood sugar through a test called a1c. Recommend weight loss if your BMI is higher than 25. ...Read more

What blood sugar level is considered normal for people with type 2 diabetes?

What blood sugar level is considered normal for people with type 2 diabetes?

Not so simple: Your medical doctor or endocrinologist can answer best, but you are best of concentrating on your hg a1c level which indicates what your sugar has been like in previous 90 days. The definitions can change but generally a hg a1c o <6.5% in a diabetic is considered good. Aim for a blood sugar level of less than 125 for early morning fasting glucose. Just ask your pmd, for a tailored result for you. ...Read more

Anyone know what is a normal blood sugar level for people with type 2 diabetes?

80 - 120: The hope is to keep the blood sugar within the normal range in persons with type 2 diabetes. *0-90 up to 120-130 is usually an acceptable range.

Your doctor, however, depending on your medications, diet. ...Read more
