    hi...blood sugars of 149mg/dl is normal when tested a few minutes to less than 2hrs after a meal..When taken before a meal,for example, first thing in the morning blood sugars should be about 70-100mg/dl.To know how well your blood sugar is controlled ,you can do a test called HbA1C. normal is below 6percent. so that 149 can be normal depending on when it was taken.

    ok. Thank u so far. Pls which fruits should i be taking or can any one go? secondly, is it only dry milk that i should be taking because someone told that THREE CROWN MILK is also good for me dat it has less cholesterol
    Dr. Adedayo A answered:

    Hello...yes,plretty much,any fruit can go.fruits have a low to medium glycameic index meaning they don't affect your sugar the way things like white bread and chocolate will.Just make sure you take them in normal quantities.e.g one Apple, one orange,a slice of water melon,a mango. Also the other advice is take no more than one glass of fruit juice a day if you feel you must drink juice.Avoid completely the fizzy drinks like coke ,fanta and the likes. AGAIN, with the milk, you probably can drink any milk you want.the watch word is moderation. Skimmed milk has less calories/fat content quite alright ,so you can drink that if you want.personally, thats what I take cause I think is slightly healthier.But skimmed milk contains no vit A.
