Great job! Keep on keeping on! We're all proud of you here. As to your question, I assume you mean for a person who does not have full-blown diabetes yet? Everybody's different. But 5.8 is great so I wouldn't even think about comparing it.

Having anything below a 7 is great for a diabetic. A 5.8 is really good, as long as you are not going low a lot. This means that you are having good control. You should be very proud.
