The fasting blood sugar level is 80 to 120 and the postprandial sugar level, which means, after the intake of foodstuff is 150 to 180 but may vary, so the level up to 200 is generally considered normal, if the fasting sugar level is within normal limits...!

Normal values
Despite short intervals between meals or the occasional consumption of meals with a substantial carbohydrate load, human blood glucose levels normally remain within a remarkably narrow range. In most humans this varies from about 80 mg/dl to perhaps 110 mg/dl (3.9 to 6.0 mmol/litre) except shortly after eating when the blood glucose level rises temporarily (up to maybe 140 mg/dl or a bit more in non-diabetics).

It is usually a surprise to realize how little glucose is actually maintained in the blood and body fluids. The control mechanism works on very small quantities. In a healthy adult male of 75 kg (165.35 lb) with a blood volume of 5 litres (1.32 gal), a blood glucose level of 100 mg/dl or 5.5 mmol/l corresponds to about 5 g (0.2 oz or 0.002 gal, 1/500 of the total) of glucose in the blood and approximately 45 g (1 ounces) in the total body water (which obviously includes more than merely blood and will be usually about 60% of the total body weight in men).

Normal
A blood glucose test measures the amount of a type of sugar, called glucose, in your blood.

Results are often ready in 1 to 2 hours. Glucose levels in a blood sample taken from your vein (called a blood plasma value) may differ a little than glucose levels checked with a finger stick.

Blood glucose Fasting blood glucose:
7099 milligrams per deciliter or less than 5.5 mmol/L

2 hours after eating (postprandial):
70145 mg/dL (less than 7.9 mmol/L) ...more
