A blood glucose level of 242 mg/dL or above attained from either the Fasting Plasma (FPG) or Random Glucose Tests generally indicates hyperglycemia. Hyperglycemia is a condition that occurs when the body doesn't have enough insulin to regulate blood sugar. Consistent blood sugar levels of 242 mg/dL or greater are likely a symptom of diabetes. If you are experiencing high glucose levels, or you're concerned that you may be diabetic, you should consult with your physician.
