Blood Sugar -What Are Your Numbers?

To take a fasting blood sugar do it first thing in the morning, or at least six to eight hours after the last meal.

If your fasting blood sugar level between 70 to 108 mg/dL is normal.

200 mg/dl or higher can indicate diabetes.

Bedtime

Before Bed, it should be less than 120 mg/dl for normal range
