My son is 11 years old and he has not been diagnosed with diabetes. his grandpa has diabetes and this past weekend he stayed with them, his grandpa was checking his sugar and he checked my sons also it was 158.is this normal. he had also just ate cereal 30 minutes before.
It's not impossible for the cereal to raise his blood sugar that high, but it isn't typical. Usually non-diabetics stay under 120. It might bear having an A1C test done by his doctor to see the average blood sugars for a couple months.
