Absolutely normal. It's what all diabetics strive for. Mine is usually between 90 and 110 except when I'm sick, stressed, or I've cheated on my diet the night before. (Don't tell anyone, but even I cheat once in a blue moon and have a big serving of lasagna).

fasting must be 8 hours if it is less than 110 it is normal & if more than 125 (126 & higher) for 2 times U R diabetic. if it is between 110 & 125 it must rechecked specially u have risk factors such as family history of diabetes,if U R fat or have recent weight loss , polyuria,polyphagia, polydypsia,...

Yep. Mine is usually around 100-105 and actually it should be that within two hours of your last meal and remain the same if you are a non diabetic, because your beta and alpha cells will produce insulin and glucose as needed.

80 is the standard.

Yes. The normal range for fasting blood sugar is 75-125.

Yes it is!! My fasting after 8 hours is usually around 85-90.

just wandering
yes that is good

Jenn B
Yes. Even though the "safe" range for blood sugar varies from person to person, your doctor will be able to tell you what your range is. In the last few years the range seems to have gone down a little. Most people that I have taken care of need to be in the 70-120 range. But that is for them, and the most common range I have seen lately.

That depends on whether or not you're diabetic, and what medication you're on.
Nomal fasting blood sugar is 60-105.
