How often should I check my blood sugar if I am prediabetic?
If you are prediabetic get yourself checked twice a year to prevent disease progression.
No, a blood sugar of 203 is not normal for a healthy person.
A fasting blood sugar level of 99 mg/dL or lower is normal, 100 to 125 mg/dL indicates you have prediabetes, and 126 mg/dL or higher indicates you have diabetes.
In general a blood sugar level more than 180mg/dl to 200mg/dl is considered diabetic. Hence, 225 needs doctor's intervention otherwise it can harm vital organs.
When blood glucose levels are high the glucose runs in the blood stream affecting kidneys, heart and eyes. Hence, patients living with diabetes must maintain good sugar levels to prevent organ damage.
