Q: Is 81 a normal blood sugar level?

I woke up this morning with a massive headache. After 3 cups of coffee(with sugar and creamer), and 2 BC Powders, I still had the headache. I just checked my blood sugar, and it was 81. Is that a normal reading?

Hello! 81 is a normal reading. If your blood sugar is high all the time 81 is going to make you feel like your blood sugar is 20. Once your bg's get use to be in normal range being 81 will not bother at all.  Hope this helps.

In any case 81 sugar level is not bad and you should not need to worry
