Based on the limited information that you have provided -

Your fasting BG is in diabetic range.

Your PP number is okay.

You have impaired fasting BG/ insulin resistance. Consider taking blood test for HbA1c also.

Lose weight if overweight.

Hi and welcome to the group, Vsrinivas. Please feel free to continue posting and commenting, asking questions, take a look at the Topics/Events/Polls/Pinned Postings sections for some ideas/suggestions, and of course get to meet the other members of the group. Everyone here is very helpful and friendly. :-)

Have you called your doctor's office for an appointment? Did your doctor give you any suggestions as to why your numbers are in the 130-140 mg/dl range? Do you count carbs. for each meal/snack? Are you on any medications/insulin/exercise and diet plans?

Hello and welcome Vsrinivas,

Your both BG numbers are not too bad but making some lifestyle changes would give you desirable outcomes for both FBS & PPBS. Have you done HbA1C ? If so, what's your recent %? If you're newly diagnosed with diabetes, gaining relevant knowledge and good understanding about this condition is essential.

Hello Vsrinivas. Keep as active as possible. I am 55 & been T1 since being 3 (Keep at it & really good luck)

You are normal 200%, so why are you worried Mr. srinivas?

Can any one please explain this to me? "My fasting count is around 130 and pp is 140."

we are getting lost in terminology!!

My fasting count is around 130 , overnight fasting, mote than 12 hours, blood collected in the morning for test in a lab?

What is PP 140?

PP is Post Prandial meaning After meals. The PP reading should be taken after 2 hours of starting the meal.

~Thanks. OK, Is fasting always lower even though people who take medication do PP?

What are the acceptable levels for both? Thanks.

Ideally fasting blood sugar level should be below 100 but for diabetics, it is not possible as disease progresses, and insulin resistance increases, fasting level increases so upto 125 is ok.... even if you take medication, it just controls and not cures the underlying cause of diabetes i.e. insulin resistance and hence PP readings can also be high depending on various factors like age, type of food (carbs whether of high or low glycemic index) and stress, sleep etc. PP levels ideally should be below 140 but upto 160-170 is ok....HbA1c is a better test to know the average blood sugar levels for the last 2-3 months...which should not be more than 7%

I’m okay, but I have to see a dermatologist on Thursday in the afternoon. My thumb is not better, yet after two weeks of antibiotics.
