i too use a meter that measures like this. my doc said healthy should be between 4 and 7. so 5.2 is about right.
i'm not sure about cortisone though...sorry
"my doc said healthy should be between 4 and 7. so 5.2 is about right"
Is this a comment or a question?
"i'm not sure about cortisone though"
Cortisone pills or injections can elevate glucose levels, creams do not - and likewise, cortisone inhalers generally have a lesser effect or no effect on blood glucose.
I responded to ikiwiabroad's post by mistake. Blame it on a new browser I'm testing. Apologize for the mixup.
Opus to answer your question, the normal mmo/l levels are 4-7 mmo/l. If you were fasting 8-10 hours prior to testing then 5.2 mmol/l would be considered normal.
