What are the normal blood sugar levels for non diabetics. I get numbers some times in the 140s- 160's. Not diabetic want to figure if it's normal.

Fasting vs nonfastin: Fasting blood sugar level should be between 60-99 (some lab range is up to 110). 100-124 is considered glucose intolerance, and 125 or above is diabetic. Testing for a protein product called a1c is useful. Any random sugar level above 200 is also considered diabetes. Right after meal sugar can be high-up to 160 within first hour. Anyway, i suggest checking with doc for eval. Good luck. ...Read more

How low can blood sugar levels be in a normal, non-diabetic person?

Rare: It is possible, but rare. It can occur following GI surgery (eg gastric bypass). Most people who are "hypoglycemic" actually are not. They may have meal-related symptoms, but blood glu is actually normal. The range of "normal" is actually quite broad, and the glu level that triggers a response (adrenaline surge, symptoms) varies a lot. A glu tolerance test is not a good test for this. ...Read more

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