Blood sugar level 127 200

Having a blood sugar level 127-200 mg/dl means that you might be suffering from diabetes or you have high risk to get diabetes. Normally, when fasting, the blood sugar level should be less than 110 mg/dl.

One or two hours after a meal, levels up to 180 mg/dl are considered normal. But, having blood sugar level more than 180 m/dl, even after a meal means that you have diabetes.

After Eating

Find out the mechanisms, symptoms, treatment and prevention of fasting, after eating and drug-induced hyperglycemia.

Patient's case: I am taking cholesterol and pressure tablets and today I took my meals 2Hrs ago and took a Random Blood Glucose test and result was136.0. mg/dl

Answer: Hi, I understand your concern. 

Random blood sugar of 136.0 mg/dl cannot consider as diabetes until we know exactly the time you measured (how long after having the meal?). So, you must repeat the testing: fasting, 2 hours after eating, and run HbA1C test to measure the average of blood sugar the last 3 months. 

Apart what you eat and drink, your medications matter too, especially if you are taking diuretics. Please mention the names of drugs you are currently taking. 

Hope this helps. 

Patient's case: When HBA1c result is below 7 Random Sugar level at 140 mg/dl..can we say Diabetes is under good control?

Answer: Hi, I understand your concern. 

Yes, when random sugar is around 140, then, we can admit that you are taking a good control of diabetes. 

However, in such cases, I recommend my patients to watch for signs of hypoglycemia. There are chances your blood sugar might be dropped at hypoglycemic levels especially if skipped meals or fasting. 

Hope this answers you query. 

Prevention of diabetes while having blood sugar level 127-200 mg/dl

Diabetes is a sneaky disease. It can cause no symptom until it has advanced much. In people with a  positive familiar history of diabetes, measuring glucose levels every 6 months is advisable.

For other people, the measurement of glucose should be done every year. Ask our specialist and get to know when you should measure your blood sugar levels?

If already having prediabetes, lifestyle changes are necessary to prevent it from developing type 2 diabetes.

Sometimes, according to your condition, your doctor might prescribe you diabetes-lowering drugs.
