Does Random Glucose Level Of 87 Suggest Pre Diabetic Stage?
Kindly repeat Fasting blood sugar ,Post prandial blood sugar
Thanks for writing in to us at hcm.
This is Dr.Riyanka and I am glad to be helping you with your query.
For people without diabetes, the normal range for the hemoglobin A1c test is between 4% and 5.6%. Hemoglobin A1c levels between 5.7% and 6.4% indicate increased risk of diabetes, and levels of 6.5% or higher indicate diabetes.
Since your random blood sugar levels looks skeptical at 87mg/dl as fasting blood sugar is itself 92mg/dl,
I suggest kindly repeat :
1. Fasting blood sugar
2. Post prandial blood sugar
in a reliable laboratory along with a Glucose Tolerance test.
If it is hinting at pre diabetes stage or insulin resistance then you will have to made dietary modifications to reduce blood sugar levels and exercise and make lifestyle changes.
The risk of early onset of diabetes is even more if there is a family history of diabetes.
After 3 months you can again get your Hb1Ac level checked again.
Hope this answers your query. Don't worry .
Do write back if you have any further doubts.
Normal blood glucose levels
Hello Mr. XXXXXXX Aggarwal,
Hope you are doing good.
According to The XXXXXXX Diabetes Association:
1. A normal fasting blood glucose target range for an individual without diabetes is 70-130 mg/dL
2. The 2 hour post prandial blood glucose target should be less than 180 mg/dL.
Hence your reports are normal.
Nothing to worry.
For reassurance you can get Hb1AC done after three months.
Hope this answers your query.
You are most welcome. Thank you for choosing Health care magic.
