This is generally a glucose level higher than (200 mg/dl) Reference ranges for blood tests or 11.1 |mmol/l] but this unit of measurement rarely used outside of medical journals, but symptoms may not start to become noticeable until even higher values such as 250–300 mg/dl or 15–20  mmol/l. A subject with a consistent range above 126 mg/dl or 7 mmol/l is generally held to have hyperglycemia. Chronic levels exceeding 7 mmol/l (125 mg/dl) can produce organ damage.
