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

Diabetes (Definition)

Diabetes is a disease of increased blood glucose levels. Glucose is a type of sugar that comes from the intake of food. Insulin is a type of hormone that removes the glucose from the blood and moves it into the cells to provide them with energy. There are two different types of diabetes: type 1 and type 2. Type 1 diabetes is when the body does not make any insulin. Therefore, glucose stays inside the blood and does not move into the cells. Type 2 diabetes, which is commonly associated with obesity, is when the body is either resistant to the effects of insulin or when the body does not produce enough insulin. Increased levels of glucose in the body causes severe damage to the ...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
