One question and answer
What is a normal blood sugar in those without diabetes?
Normally when blood sugar is measured early morning after 8 hrs fasting it should be below 100mg%. Plasma sugar 2 hrs after food is less than 140mg%. In those patients with diabetes the normal blood sugars to be achieved while on treatment is decided by the diabetologist based on age, duration diabetes, other associated illnesses, educational status, frequency of self-monitoring etc.
