QUESTION: I WANT TO KNOW DIABETES LEVEL AFTER FOODING & FASTING FOR THE DIFFERENT AGE GROUPS.



ANSWER: Please find the required fasting blood glucose levels and after eating according to age groups, in the following:

  • Fasting Blood Glucose


  • Children - 70 - 110 mg/dL (Normal); >130 mg/dL (Diabetes).

    Adults - 70 - 100 mg/dL (Normal); >126 mg/dL (Diabetes).

    Pregnant women - 70 - 130 mg/dL (Normal); >140 mg/dL (Diabetes).

  • Blood Sugar After Eating


  • Children - <130 mg/dL (Normal); > 140 mg/dL (Diabetes).

    According to the latest ADA guidelines for 2011, the blood sugar levels should be individualized, i.e. each person has its own "normal" or "diabetic" blood glucose readings.
