    Better than 7 not so good as 5 but all pretty meaningless without some context.

    6.2 what? Before a meal, after a meal, fasting? It is in the normal range, so I'd say, yeah, it is. ;)

    Me too, but I'm T1, and the others are right that context is everything. :)

    What was your blood sugar two hours after the toast??
    Radom blood tests don’t say much. Better to test before and after food so you know how to adjust what you eat to keep your blood sugar steady.
