After a night of fasting, it is expected that the blood sugar level upon waking up in the morning should be low. If, however, the level is high, it may be an indication of a health issue that needs attention.
In this article, based on information from Mayo Clinic, we will explore what fasting blood sugar level is considered too high. According to healthline If you are not diabetic but your blood sugar level falls within this range in the morning, it is advisable to undergo a comprehensive diabetes test.
What Is A High Fasting Blood Sugar Level?
Studies have shown that a fasting blood sugar level between 100 to 125 mg/dL is considered prediabetic. This means that you need to be watchful for other symptoms that could indicate that you are close to becoming diabetic.
Furthermore, a fasting blood sugar level of 126 mg/dL or higher after two consecutive tests indicates full diabetes and requires immediate medical attention. For someone who is not diabetic, a normal fasting blood sugar level should be below 100.
