Brief Answer: Pre diabetes can have same complications as diabe. Detailed Answer: Dear sir, Hi! I really appreciate your concern and your efforts. as to what level the sugars are harmful, the cut off is fasting 126mg/dl and post meal 200mg/dl. besides fasting between 100 -126mg/dl and post meal 140-200mg / dl will have progressive deleterious effects. if your hba1c is well controlled and also fasting and pp then you need not worry. but if sugars are going upto 180 then either take smaller meal or start medicines like voglibose or metformin.
