My blood sugar is 111. I am 72 years old. What should my blood sugar be?
6 Jul 2011
A fasting (meaning no food or drink other than water since going to bed and taking the reading before breakfast) morning blood sugar should be in the ranges of 70-100 (some sources say70-105 to 110 is still within normal range). A 2 hour post prandial (or 2 hours after eating a meal) should range 70-145. A random (meaning any other time) blood sugar should range 70-125. If your blood sugar reading was a random or post prandial reading, you are normal. If it were a fasting blood sugar then you were a little high. Have you been diagnosed with diabetes? For some diabetics 111 is not too bad a reading, especially if you tend to run very high.

My blood sugar levels have been running good during the day but in the morning they are sometime 20 points above normal. Why would this be?
