Dear Leoni

A random glucose reading of 5.2 would be in the normal range. I would suggest next time rather doing a fasting reading, i.e overnight following 8 hours of fasting, as this will take out the effect of food, and give you a more consistent , reproducible reading, that you can compare with future readings.
