The levels up to 100 are considered normal sugar levels, and levels between 100 and 126 are considered pre-diabetes. Most people who have had a blood glucose level over 500mg are considered to be into uncontrolled diabetis. When the blood glucose level gets over 500mg, generally, the cause is uncontrolled diabetes. The effects of having a consistent high blood glucose level can be devastating on the body which can cause complications such as heart disease and stroke, blindness, hypertension, diabetic neuropathy, nerve damage, depression, complications with feet, kidney disease and limb amputation.

FBS 100MG/DL-126MG/DL IS IMPAIRED BLOOD SUGARS IF MORE THAN126 ITS DIABETES
PPBS 140-199MG/DL IS IMPAIRED POSTPRANDIAL IF MORE THAN 200MG ITS DIABETES
IF RBS IS IS 400MG/DL ITS UNCONTROLLED DIABETES IT MAY REQUIRE INSULIN INITIALLY TO BRING DOWN BLOOD SUGAR LEVELS ,AND LATER TABLETS HOWEVER CHECK FOR ANY INFECTIONS LIKE CHEST,URINARY TRACT WHICH WOULD HAVE MADE UR SUGARS HIGH DIABETES CAN ONLY BE CONTROLLED NOT CURED .AND IF CONTROLLED PERSON CAN LEAD A NORMAL LIFE.GOOD DIRT CONTROL AND APPROPRIATE MEDICATIONS
