    I have a 105 after fasting.  How dangerous is this?  by the way, my father, and both my paternal grandmother and grandfather had diabetes.

    I agree somewhat with the other answer.  105 fasting is not that bad - goal is 95 or below.  Also 2 hours after meals goal should be 130 or below.  That 2 hours after is from the beginning of the meal - so if you START eating at 6pm, then you would test at 8pm.

    Hi :-)

     

    105 is not dangerous, however, I believe you also need to know what your blood sugar result is a couple hours after eating a normal meal.   Both these numbers are important in determining your level of risk.   In addition, you need to ask your Dr. to do an A1C test.  This will determine your average blood glucose level over an extended period of time.  Diabetes is like anything else.  Learn everything you can and you have the power to put up an intelligent fight.  If you do develop the disease, ask your primary care Dr. for a referral to the best Endocrinologist in your area.  (It has been my experience that primary care physicians do not have the latest medical data and information on new treatments, studies, etc.)    Hope this helps.

     

    Good luck to you, Jo Ann
