Thanks for writing to us.
Blood glucose levels are assessed during fasting and two hours after taking a meal. In a normal healthy adult fasting blood glucose levels should be less than 110 mg/dl. The post prandial blood glucose levels are normally below 180 mg/dl. In case of raised blood glucose levels, glucose tolerance test is advised for the proper diagnosis.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

A fasting plasma glucose level of more than 126 mg/dl indicates diabetes mellitus. A level between 110-125 mg/ dl is called "impaired fasting glucose". A PP or random plasma glucose level of more than 200 mg/dl indicates diabetes mellitus. A level between 140-199 mg/ dl is called "impaired glucose tolerance". A blood sugar exceeding the level of 200 mg/dl or higher generally indicates the presence of diabetes.
