I know that as a diabetic, you would be very interested in knowing your ideal sugar level.
Even in case you might not be a diabetic, you may still want to know about the ideal blood sugar range and how to keep yourself away from diabetes onset.
In general, if you keep your blood sugar level below 100 mg/dl and higher than 80 mg/dl, this is considered as ideal range.
Before performing a lab test, you should have been fasting for at least 8 hours prior going to lab.
If the test results below 100 mg/dl, then it is considered normal reading.
But, if it's 100-125 mg/dl, it's considered prediabetes; while higher than 126 mg/dl is considered diabetes.
Convert mg/dl to mmol/l
On the other hand, you must watch how fast your blood sugar is raising up.
So, if you take too many carbohydrates or refined sugars , your blood sugar level will spike very fast after meal.
What you can do in this case is to monitor the carbs you intake. Whole grains and unrefined flours and sugars would be your best choice.
Meanwhile, exercise and other natural lifestyle changes would give you a useful hand.
