In most humans this varies from 82 mg/dl to 110 mg/dl (4.4 to 6.1 mmol/l) except shortly after eating when the blood glucose level rises temporarily up to 140 mg/dl (7.8 mmol/l) or a bit more in the non-diabetics. The American Diabetes Association recommends a post-meal glucose level less than 180 mg/dl (10 mmol/l) and a pre-meal plasma glucose of 90-130 mg/dl (5 to 7.2 mmol/l). So you migght be in Pre-daibetes stage..take good care..controll what you eat..and follow your doctor's advise strictly.
