From Superior, COloraado, USA:
I understand that one of the first signs of developing diabetes is a rise in the two-hour fasting blood glucose reading. What would be considered an abnormally high reading for a 7-year-old child?
Two hours isn't fasting; two hours is postprandial for which 140 is the top.
