Screening for blood glucose. Is this high

I was at the supermarket and they had screening for blood glucose. I had eaten white bread with 18 carbs a.nd butter about 3 hours before. I was 116. Is this too high

Doesn't seem too high.

Have your doctor give you an A1c blood test. That is a much better judge of diabetes than a supermarket screening.

Best of luck to you.

And be sure to be fasting the next blood test you have.

Nope not high at all I'm a type 1 diabetic for 29 years along with all the females on my mom's side a hba1c is always the best test I wouldn't be concerned unless it's above 140.
