What Is Ok For A Sugar Level?

Normal Fasting Blood Sugar Levels Your body uses glucose for energy. When you wake up in the morning after fasting for at least eight hours, your blood sugar should fall between 70 and 100 milligrams per deciliter, or mg/dL. Levels between 100 and 120 mg/dL in the morning indicate that you have pre-diabetes, a condition that makes it likely that you'll develop type II diabetes in the future, the National Diabetes Information Clearinghouse warns. Blood Sugar After Eating What you eat and how much you eat influences how high your blood sugar level rises after eating. If you have a normal blood sugar level, your level even after eating normally won't rise above 125 mg/dL most of the time, according to MedlinePlus. When testing for diabetes, a level of less than 200 mg/dL one hour after ingesting a high-glucose drink or snack and less than 140 mg/dL two hours after ingestion is considered non-diabetic, MedlinePlus also reports. A blood sugar level that is between 140 to 199 mg/dL zero to two hours after ingestion indicates pre-diabetes, however. Diabetic Fasting Levels The American Diabetes Association says diabetics should maintain a normal fasting blood sugar level between 70 to 130 Continue reading >>

    How Low Can Your Blood Glucose Level Go Safely?

    Low blood sugar can result in weakness, confusion, headache, irritability, excessive hunger, excessive sweating or fatigue.
    The normal range of blood sugar is 80 - 120 mg/dL (milligrams per deciliter) in the morning (after fasting for at least 8 hours). Normally, if the level drops below 70 mg/dL, the person is said to suffer from hypoglycemia or low blood sugar levels.
    You may experience trembling and if your blood sugar still drops down, you could have a seizure. Increasing glucose intake, like drinking fruit juice, can help raise your blood glucose.
    The ideal blood glucose levels range for you may be different from another person's and the level of glucose in blood would keep on changing throughout the day.
    Similarly, the point at which the severe effects of insufficient blood sugar would be experienced may vary from person to person.
    For some, sugar level below 70 mg/dL can be hypoglycemic, while for others the 'trigger point' can be at 60 mg/dL.
    So, you need to consult your doctor about how much of blood sugar should be running, to keep you safe. He will tell you what blood sugar range is normal for you.


    Lows are extremely dangerous, people who continue to go low often quit getting the warning signs. That is right your system will quit warning you until you like a light switch go into seizures and coma. One of my best friends has experienced this two times because he quit getting warnings. Had his wife not found him this last time when she did he would be dead. They sent him to a large hospital by lifeflight because the local hospital didn't have the specialists needed to save his life. It takes a few months of regular blood glucose numbers to reset your warning system if you have caused it to lower or go away totaly. Yes some people feel it at different times because they have lowered their body thermostat warning system lower by continually going to low. This information come from a book written by a diabetes specialists name Dr Bernstein ( Diabetes Solution ).
    Just be very careful, don't play roulette with low blood glucose it can be as deadly as a gun.

    My lowest low was 29, a couple months ago, while I was asleep. I only woke up because I had to go to the bathroom, and I figured I should check my blood sugar because I was pretty dizzy. Last night, I had a low of 39. I almost never feel lows until I'm in the 50's or 40's. My doc is concerned about nighttime hypoglycemia because my A1Cs are always lower than what they should be, considering my highs. I've only been diagnosed with type 1 for 2 1/2 years, but I stopped feeling symptoms of highs and lows around 6 months in, so at this point I'm fundraising for a diabetic alert dog.
