pre-diabetic range

I saw the dietician yesterday and she said I am in the pre-diabetic range
I have changed my eating to a healthier plan lowering carbs and excising etc.
I bought a meter and have been testing in the morning and two hrs after meals. I tested tonight before I ate and my reading was 97 mg/dl.
my question is what are pre-diabetic readings supposed to be?
I can find lots of information on diabetic glucose levels.
but I am not sure what pre-diabetic glucose levels should be.

Re: pre-diabetic range

Pre-d is considered to be a fasting of between 100 and 125. Anything over 125 fasting is considered to be in the diabetic range. I'm not sure what they consider pre-diabetic for post meal readings.

Re: pre-diabetic range

Because you are aware you are "pre"diabetic and you have changed your diet and are exercising, you should aim for normal blood sugars. Diabetes is diagnosed with two fasting blood sugars of 126 or more or anytime a blood sugar of over 200. Prediabetic ranges is many times described as fastings higher than 100 but lower than 126. 2 hrs after a meal, people with diabetes are asked to stay under 140 for good control. Good numbers for you 2 hrs after a meal should be under that and the closer you get to 100 the better.

Re: pre-diabetic range

Thanks for your reply, I am going to a class on wednesday evening and I will be tracking it for 3 months and go back mid January for another A1C test, this morning I did a fasting blood sugar reading and it was 98mg/dl so hopefully I am on the right track.

Re: pre-diabetic range

Fasting blood glucose of 98 mg/dl is at the very high end of the "normal" range (65 to 99 mg/dl), so if you were in the pre-diabetic range (100 to 125 mg/dl) before, that is an improvement. You will have to maintain the healthier habits for life to stop or slow down the progression of diabetes.

Re: pre-diabetic range

Why did your dietician tell you that you are prediabetic? Yours sugar levels are still in the normal range, like mine. They are just high end of the normal.
