My answer is abnormally low.

According to ADA guidelines, normal random glucose test levels in an average adult range from 79-160 mg/dLor 4.4-7.8 mmol/L. A blood glucose level of 12 mg/dL is definitely not the high end of normal, it is dangerously low.

I beg to differ normal BGL reading is 60-100 mg/dl.

Hypoglycemia is <50-60mg/dl you might have done a mistake in the units of measurement eg. mmol/L?
