What's a normal blood glucose level for non diabetics upon waking?
Hello guys.

I'm an 18 year old male from the UK and I recently bought a glucose monitor because I thought I might have been diabetic. I've been worrying about it lots.

Before I went to bed, I just had a bowl of cereal, I had about 8 hours sleep, as soon as I woke, I took my blood sugar reading and it was at 6.6mmol.

Is this normal?

Don't forget I mean FASTING glucose level. 6.6 is still right for a fasting glucose level upon waking? :/

A fasting reading of 6.6 mmol/l is higher than the upper limit of normal, which is 5.5 mmol/l, but lower than the 7.0 reading that is required to diagnose diabetes.

I suggest you continue to monitor your blood glucose at home and follow up with your physician if your morning readings stay elevated.

Hi. I have had diabetes for 7 years now. The perfect blood sugar for example as yourself with no diabetes ranges between 4-8! You have nothing to worry about. However symptoms of diabetes are going to the loo alot, drinking a lot, shaking, blurred vision. etc. I think you'd know if u have diabetes because it's terrible you feel ill constantly. I wish i didnt have it but thts life. If you have any queries go to your doctor. Hope i helped

Normal fasting blood glucose levels upon arising should be between 70-110mg/dl. f it's below that it may be suggestive of hypoglycemia, if above 110 or higher then diabetes must be ruled out. In any case it's good to go to a doctor for a work up. Yours seems to be slightly below the normal range, but not significantly so. Good Luck
