In brief: Same

Except for newborns, normal fasting blood sugars range from 65-99 mg/dl.
2 hours after eating blood sugar should be no higher than 139 mg/dl to be considered in the normal range.

In brief: No; 100; 140

Normals are the same regardless of age.
Fasting under 100 (110 according to others); 2 hours post meal under 140.
