What are the blood sugar ranges. For fasting, Before & after meals what is pre diabetes. What is normal ranges?
Thanks 4 your time explaining them!
Ideally less than150: But as you know very hard to achieve. But that was not the question you asked.

A low blood sugar reaction is not caused by a number but how rapidly the blood sugar drops do a child may have a reaction at a number of 100 if they were really high before. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hi i have not been diagnosed with or tested for diabetes but I have been testing my blood sugar and it can range from 5.5 to 1.6 what does this mean ?
Unreliable : Home glucose monitors in the normal range are famously unreliable. Leave this testing to your physician and stop reading pop articles encouraging you to diagnose yourself with things you do not have. Forgive my frankness, stay physically fit, build your career skills, and do the things an 18 year old should. Best wishes. ...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

I have type 2 pre-diabetes. My blood sugar tends to be high first thing in the morning but normal in the afternoon. What would cause this and does it matter if it returns to normal?
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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. A normal hemoglobin a1c which measures what the blood sugar has averaged over the last 10-12 weeks is also a good measure of blood sugar stability. Ideally the hemoglobin a1c should be under 7=7.5. Your doctor, however, depending on your medications, diet. ...Read more

All a spectrum: It's all one continuous pathway from Insulin resistance to prediabetes to overt diabetes. The dividing lines are totally arbitrary.
