What is normal range blood sugar

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

A blood glucose level of between 5.6 to 7 is termed as prediabetes or you will be at increased risk of diabetes in future and you need to take care of this with diet and exercise.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

If the fasting blood level is more than 7 then you have diabetes.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You should remember that all this applies when you are fasting i.e. you check your blood glucose in the morning before you have taken breakfast.

Normal fasting blood glucose is less than 5.6.
