Blood Sugar Optimizer
The normal blood sugar level for a person depends upon when the test for blood glucose is performed as well as whether an individual is diabetic or not. When performed in the morning before the first meal - fasting blood sugar - the normal range is from 70 to 100 milligrams per deciliter. This test is performed without food for the six to eight hours previous and should not be confused with either the preprandial test. A preprandial test, one performed two hours before a meal, will have a range from 80 to 110 milligrams per deciliter. A postprandial test is performed after a meal, typically two hours after eating, and should not exceed 145 milligrams per deciliter.
However, these levels are not those recommended by the American Diabetes association for diabetics. Preprandial (including fasting), the blood sugar is expected to be from 70 to 130 milligrams per deciliter. The postprandial glucose level should be below 180 milligrams per deciliter. Diabetics, either because of insulin resistance or reduced insulin production, are unable to metabolize glucose as well as non0diabetics, hence the higher normal levels.
