What is a normal blood sugar level?

I was diagnosed as a pre diabetic so my question is, is 112 a normal blood sugar level? I’m new to this.

The American Diabetes Association currently classifies anyone with fasting blood sugar between 100-126 mg/DL as having Pre-diabetes. Anything over 126 mg/DL is classified as being diabetic. What is “normal” keeps changing. There was a time, barely a decade ago, when having fasting blood sugars of 150mg/DL were classified as being “normal”.

From a simple, practical standpoint, here’s what research shows and what you may want to do, to prevent becoming diabetic.

Nothing happens overnight. It’s not like your blood sugar is perfect and then suddenly, one morning, you wake up with pre-diabetes. New research shows that diabetes causes gradual damage to internal organs, including your arteries, even at fasting blood sugar levels between 80-100 mg/DL. So the sooner you can improve your diet and lifestyle, the faster you can prevent this damage. This way, you can also save yourself from being classified a full blown “diabetic” down the road.

The resources we shared earlier, in terms of how doctors are Reversing Type 2 Diabetes were to help you achieve this. The way to prevent/reverse Pre-diabetes is the same as the way to prevent/reverse Diabetes. Clean up your diet and lifestyle with small steps and your body will thank you and serve you well for decades.
