    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    What are the healthy ranges and what level indicates possible pre diabetes and diabetes.
    DavidHueben responded:
    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.
