Re: Normal readings
Aug 15, 2008
Those numbers are completely normal.

First thing to understand is that blood sugar levels are not static...they don't stay at one number all the time, and they definitely go up in response to eating, even for a non-diabetic. And they will go up more or less depending on the type of food eaten. The major difference in blood glucose levels between diabetics and non-diabetics is that in a diabetic person the blood sugar will go up much higher after the same amount of food and will take quite a bit longer to come down than in a non-diabetic person.

According to the Joslin Diabetes Center, good blood glucose ranges for the non-diabetic are as follows:

Before breakfast (fasting): Less than 100
Before lunch, supper or snack: Less than 110
Two hours after a meal: Less than 140
Bedtime: Less than 120

A1c: Less than 6.0 (although most non-diabetics will
have A1c's in the 4-5.0 range)
