Janap, it depends on whether it is a fasting or a random sample, but 11.3 mmol/L is too high no matter whether it was fasting or not. Let me know if it was a fasting sample or not and we’ll take it from there. Good luck.

Mine tested 12 but I had just had 2 jam sandwiches and was told that it's fine. So if you'd eaten something justy before the test, have another test without having anything to eat for 2 hours or so before.

If that is your fasting blood sugar level, you are an overt diabetic and need treatment for it IMMEDIATELY! as in TODAY! normal blood sugar is 5.5-6 or lower.
