Go to your doctors and get a diabetic test kit prescription from your chemist / pharmacist
they will supply you with a test kit and test needles
using the machine supplied
pierce the skin of a finger and put the machine sensor on the blood and check the reading on the screen
make sure that you get all the sheets from your doctor as sugar levels are critical and should only be done with a doctors knowledge
if you are in a country that doesn't have a diabetic support system, work more closely with your treating doctor

I am a female aged 55 and weigh 80kg. Is a blood sugar level of 10.5 normal?

Remember that fasting normal level is between 4.5-6. If this is a fasting level, this is abnormal. It is possible to have post-prandial levels approaching this and return to normal within a specified time.
I would talk to a doctor and get some further testing done to determine how best to respond to this level.

Give me blood sugar levels

They vary throughout the day. For someone without diabetes, a fasting blood sugar on awakening should be under 100 mg/dl. Before-meal normal sugars are 70-99 mg/dl. "Postprandial" sugars taken two hours after meals should be less than 140 mg/dl. What Is Normal Blood Sugar Level Diabetes Self Management
