Doctor: HelloWelcome to Ask The Doctor.Blood sugar variations can occur in normal people too. Fasting blood sugar of 126 m g/dl it is considered as diabetes and if blood sugar fasting is between 110-126 mg/gl, we call it Pre-diabetes or impaired fasting.Your blood sugar levels seems normal to me.You can get a glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) done to be sure.I hope it helps.Stay Healthy.
