From Stockholm, Sweden:

What blood glucose levels are considered normal? Is it between 6-10 mmol/litre?


In general when you don't have diabetes, approximately 60-120 mg/dl (divide by 18 to convert to mmol/l) would be considered normal. However there are specific requirements to make a diagnosis of diabetes

If you are asking about the goal for blood sugars with someone with diabetes, that answer would be individualized, and the question would be best discussed with the diabetes care provider.

Remember that home meters can not make the diagnosis of diabetes nor distinguish a normal number from a hypoglycemic number.
