The accepted standards for normal blood glucose levels are:

Fasting Blood Glucose

Between 70 and 99

Two Hour Post Prandial

140 or below

Prediabetes is defined as fasting blood glucose levels (done in a lab) between 100 and 125.

Two fasting blood glucose tests (done in a lab) that are 126 or greater are suggestive of diabetes.
