Re: What Number Is Considered Diabetic

A fasting blood glucose of 126 or above is considered diabetic. 108 could be labeled pre-diabetic if you consistently run over 100 fasting.

The time of day and if you have eaten are the key factors. You didn't mention when you tested.

Re: What Number Is Considered Diabetic

More information is needed. You should check your blood sugar regularly to determine if you are diabetic or not. Wallis gave you a fasting number. Fasting means upon rising in the morning after a good nights sleep. You can check your blood sugar before you eat to get a number, eat then you can check it one and two hours after eating. This will show you how well your body is handling carbs or other foods. I normally use a two hour after meal reading.
