Causes of Slightly High Blood Sugar

QUESTION: Hi


I have been having just alittle bit high blood sugar which goes some times up to 107 or 110 and my doctor said that i do not have to worry about it.

I am not sure if that number is high or normal. I have not been taking any kind of medications. So, I want to know: Is 107 a good blood sugar level? What about up to 110 blood sugar level range?

thanks

ANSWER: Hi Roni,

First, let me remind you that the normal blood glucose concentration is between 64.8-104.4mg/dl. As you can see by yourself, everything seems to be ok with your glucose metabolism.

Moreover, keep also in mind that slight deviations are allowed due to different apparatuses, used in the laboratories, different reagents and of course individual differences.

Therefore, having blood glucose results of 107 or 110 does not have to terrify you, because a lot of factors can lead to such results.

First possible explanation of such slight elevation in the blood glucose concentration is the consumption of food, just right before the fasting blood glucose test. Remember that you have to be fasting before running this test.

Other factor, which can explain your slight elevation in blood glucose is having a dinner rich in calories, the day before.

You have to know that the organism needs time to use the glucose acquired with the food and when you are eating a lot, your blood glucose is higher.

However, this doesn’t mean that you have diabetes or something like that.

What does blood sugar level 107 to 110 mg/dL after eating mean?



Normal blood sugar level (bsl) after eating is considered less than 140 mg/dL. Your reading is ranging from 107 to 110 mg/dL. So, this is perfectly normal, it is also not considered prediabetic, nor high enough to be a diabetic.

Normally, bg would increase immediately after eating. But, after 2 hours the sugar will get back to normal range. This happening in your case too. So, you must try your best to keep this range of bg.


  • In addition, I want to inform you that there are certain early symptoms of diabetes such as urinating a lot, eating more than usual and drinking plenty of water.

    Therefore, it is possible for you to have diabetes if you experience some of the symptoms mentioned above.

  • Besides, if you are worried about your blood glucose tests results, you can always to do something in purpose to avoid such results in the future.

    The best way for you is to start following a healthy diet and to begin with the exercises. Those activities are going to reduce the glucose concentration in your organism, which means that such results are no going to appear again.

    Next, quitting bad habits (alcohol, smoking, etc) can also reduce your risk of developing diabetes. If this is still not enough, and your bsl keep being high, then, you can try a natural alternative to use safely. Click here to learn more.

    Hope it helped! All the best!

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting.

    Your blood sugar level (bsl) of 107 mg/dl falls within normal range.

    Take note that the upper limit for blood sugar is:
    - fasting: 110
    - two hours after eating: less than 180

    So, yours (107) is within normal range in either cases.

    If your doctor said nothing over 100, I advise to sit down with your doctor and discuss further about your blood sugar numbers.

    Individual ranges are highly recommended depending on the personal health situation of the patient and personal/family history.

    If you are having any symptom with the current blood sugar levels, please let me know. Perhaps we are missing something here and should go for further evaluations.

    Hope this answers your query!
