what is the normal level of blood sugar for a child?
(sacramento ca )
QUESTION: My friend is diabetic and tested her sugar at my house last night. my son (11) was curious about it and as part of the explanation she let him test his own sugar. it was 119 4 hours after he ate. is this normal?
: Hi there,
Don't worry, your son's blood sugar level is perfectly normal.
Children are active and in midst of their flourish, that is why childrens blood sugar level
is a bit higher compared to that for adults.
6-12 years old: 100 - 180 mg/dl (including the overnight blood sugar level).
Thus, your son is perfectly normal. Dr.Alba
