A blood glucose level of 120 mg/dL attained from the Fasting Plasma Glucose Test (FPG) falls into the pre-diabetic range. Pre-diabetes is defined as higher than normal blood sugar and is a sign that your body is on its way to developing diabetes. Consider consulting your physician if you see consistent FPG blood sugar levels of 120 mg/dL or higher.

If you've taken a Random Glucose Test, a blood glucose level of 120 mg/dL still falls into the normal range. Maintaining normal blood sugar levels is important in preventing diabetes. Learn more about how you can prevent diabetes before it starts.
