Q.

Higher Blood SugarLevel

Hi
I had a check at the pharmacy this morning. My blood sugar level was 6.9. What is normal or higher? What next? Any cause for concern?

If it was a fasting sugar (you have not eat anything from the previous evening) it is in the category of impaired fasting glucose - this means that you may be at risk. If it was a random sugar (not fasting) it is fine. However, following a healthy lifestyle will be beneficial.
