Is a fasting blood sugar level of 107 dangerous?
I woke up recently on sunday morning and took my blood sugar, as one of my diabetic friends was taking theirs, I hadn't eaten breakfast and my blood sugar was at 108 my friend said that was quite high or so she thought and asked if I had eaten, I said no, she said that she would take my blood sugar again after dinner and so I ate my two normal meals and about an hour and a half after dinner (close to 2 hours) she took my blood sugar and it was at 81, she said that means that my pancreas is functioning normally, so I don't have diabetes, but still I've been feeling a little scared about that morning reading, today I took it once again in the morning, after not having eaten for 12 hours and came up with a reading of 107. I don't understand why it's so high in the morning is this dangerous?

A fasting blood sugar of 100 to 120 is generally considered pre-diabetic. To avoid as best as possible getting full blown diabetes it would be a good idea to consult a doctor, repeat the test, and follow the doc's advice. If you catch it early, through diet and exercise you can bring the sugar down.

Well I wouldn't say it's *dangerous* because it's only slightly above the normal range. However it is unusual to have high blood sugar in the morning; usually that should be the lowest point of the day.

Don't get scared about it, just mention it to your doctor at your next yearly checkup. If you don't go for regular appointments, then I'd suggest making an appointment especially to ask about this.

It is not "dangerous" but a little high. Normally when fasting, your body produces a hormone (glucagon) which in effect raises blood sugar. In other words this is your body's defence to fasting. However, your body then produces insulin to redress the balance and deal with the increased sugar levels. This way your body's blood sugar is kept under control. If you have taken two tests (under similar conditions), and your blood sugar level is above 100, your body may not be producing sufficient insulin. A result of 100-126 indicates pre-diabetes. Add to this any family history of diabetes, and it becomes worthwhile seeing your doctor because, at this stage, you can still do things to prevent diabetes developing (e.g. changes in diet, exercise, etc.). By the way, LOW blood sugar (i.e. very low) is generally considered more dangerous than high.
