What is too high for blood glucose?

I keep finding different info online. Some say 120 others say 140.

Info on the web is not consistent about blood glucose levels, that's for sure, OP. The info is confusing and conflicting from what little lookups I've done.

I do know acceptable levels are different between people with diabetes (and treating with meds) and those without diabetes, so you'd need to be more specific in your query. Also, you need to decide if you want the instant glucose monitor numbers (I think those are called mg/dl) or the long term lab test numbers (which I think are A1C).

I THINK, for the mg/dl, if you have med treated type 2 and are below 130 after fasting you're okay - and without diabetes it's 100. But don't rely on me.

If all else fails, you should just put a call into your Primary Care doc and ask them.

thanks r1

I have an appointment Tuesday.

It's odd. My quest lab results show green (meaning ok) but if I look online the numbers say is should be lower.

It's so odd since I've lost a bunch of weight. It seems like my numbers should have gone down.

Different labs have different parameters however they are not usually that far off from each other. You must consider that your results should be based on a fasting blood glucose level. Having said all of that a fasting blood glucose level of 70-100mg/dL is generally considered normal

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
