177 blood sugar is that high

Not Medical Advice:

A blood sugar level of 177 may or may not be considered as high; it depends on when you took the test in relation to your last meal.

If you've fasted for at least 8 hours then a blood sugar level over 130mg/dL is high.

However, after a meal blood sugar is usually over 180mg/dL before it is considered as high, or hyperglycemic.

When a person with diabetes is hyperglycemic often or for long periods of time, damage to nerves, blood vessels, and other body organs can occur.
