What is the normal blood sugar for a 50-year-old women?


Answer by  dbmom (38)

A normal blood sugar for anyone is between 60 and 120. Higher than 120 could indicate diabetes, while lower than 60 can indicate hypoglycemia. Each of these conditions have their own unique problems. Some symptoms of low blood sugar are dizziness, weakness and feeling faint. Some symtoms of higher blood sugar are excessive thirst or urination.

The normal value for any age ranges from 80mg/dl- 109mg/dl. However, directly after eating a meal, your blood sugar can rise to up to 140 mg/dl and be considered normal.

Well, the normal blood sugar for that range is usually determined by some rule of thumb which I was taught many years ago. Apparently, if you are over 50, what you can do is use this rule: Age+100, will determine what your normal range should be. Well, that is what I heard.

A fasting glucose test proves that a normal range would be under 110. If you do a random glucose test, a normal range would be from 100-150. You are considered diabetic is your blood sugar is above 200 accompanied with other symptoms of the diasease.
