Hello @dlh and welcome to Mayo Connect.

I can see you are concerned about your fasting blood sugar numbers. Have you just recently been diagnosed with Type II Diabetes?

I looked up some information on Mayo Clinic's website and here is the link,


It says, "A fasting blood sugar level less than 100 mg/dL (5.6 mmol/L) is normal. A fasting blood sugar level from 100 to 125 mg/dL (5.6 to 6.9 mmol/L) is considered prediabetes."

Many members of Connect have mentioned higher numbers in the morning. Here is a discussion about that,

Are you currently taking any meds or just following a diet/exercise program? Have you mentioned your concern about your fasting numbers to your doctor?

I am a type 2 diabetic. I am on medication and was diagnosed about 7 years ago. I have had decent numbers but I would like to stay under 100. I do walk 5 to 6 times a week for about 35 to 50 minutes at a time. My doctor, an internal medicine physician, reads my blood work twice a year with one main physical involved.
