I'm not sure how to word this...I'm wondering what a normal blood sugar level is during the day...not FBG or before or after eating.  I mean just when you're living life.  Anytime during the day.  I also want to say that I'm glad you're back from vacation, Lanie!  Hope you had a good one!  Joni

I also meant to say that I'm pre diabetic and I'm not taking any meds. Thank you!

Hi Joni! Thanks.  I did have a nice restful time and now it's hard to get back in the swing.  Normal blood sugar ranges differ throughout the day and from person to person but a nondiabetic would most probably have readings under 100 or not much over.  If that person eats a meal with a lot of carbs, the blood sugar could go up to 120 or higher (rarely over 140 though) about 2 hours after the meal but come back to normal fairly quickly.  A person who's diabetic and not on meds would spike much higher and take a longer time to come back down.  That might be the same for a person who's insulin resistant, like me.  Blood sugar of 140 or higher for lengths of time is not healthy for the body organs and over time can lead to damage, which is why control is important, whether by meds or diet and exercise if possible.
