What is a normal blood sugar level for a pregnant woman?

  • AMehmet Oz, MD, Cardiology, answered
    For a fasting blood test (no food within eight hours), blood sugar should be under 95 mg/dL. (Normally, it's 100 mg/dL, but pregnant women have lower blood sugar, so 95 is the norm.) If your levels are higher, it can be a sign of gestational diabetes.
