Q:
What would you consider normal ranges for blood sugar levels?

A:
In general terms, a normal range is generally given as 70-110 fasting, depending on the health condition of the individual. A good fasting range for most with and without diabetes is 80-90. Pre-diabetes is now 100; diabetes is 126 and up. The ideal is not to exceed 120 in a non-fasting state, with 140 being an upper threshold limit. For someone with diabetes who is generally in good control and health, we encourage working towards the non-diabetic ranges.
