108.

I'm under the assumption a FBG >99 is in the pre-diabetic range, is this correct?

I'm seldom under 100, if ever. I eat very low carb and am quite active, yet my latest A1c at 5.2 and those I've had over the last couple of years have been below the pre-diabetic threshold.

So is your FBG supposed to be your highest or lowest or neither in a 24 hour period?

IMO, it is what it is. There's no "supposed to be" about it. Everyone's diabetes is different as far as whether or not FBG is low or high.

It's not as though there's much one can do about FBG other than make sure BG the rest of the day is low. I know some have found a few tricks to lower FBG - most what they eat or don't eat at night. When FBG gets too high, it's probably time to consider at least basal insulin.

My FBG is still pretty good. Liver dumps are minimal and I can easily fast breakfast without BG going above 125 (and then only for a short time) so my pancreas is working some. But, it's very much YMMV.

Like how high for FBG? Even though A1c is still in the "normal" range?

With the understanding that any BG over 140 is causing some damage, I wouldn't want to spend much time >140. A spike now and then wouldn't be bad, but for myself, I wouldn't want to have this happen every day. It also depends on how long a raised BG lasts in the morning and if it continues to rise even after breakfast.

I think metformin can help with DP and if one isn't on it already, this may be a logical first step.

I agree, I seldom approach 140 even spiking after a normal meal. Rarely I may eat Mexican and see a 150-160 spike for a short duration. My FBG high lasts a short time, then starts falling. I seldom eat breakfast, generally 1-2 meals a day. I do take 1000 mg met. No diabetes in either of my folks, Mom 96, Dad 98, both quite healthy.

110 this morning
I think my dog tried to help with my lack of exercise. Either that or she tried to kill me.
I accidentally let her out the front door. I chased her around the neighborhood. Probably 3/4 mile and most of it uphill. The scariest part of it all was when she/we went through someone's back yard and I saw a sign that said "Trespassers will be shot. Survivors will be shot again."
