Old sugars avg 220. Then with med sugar 150. Now no meds with new diet low carbs thru dietician and maintaing 115 avg Fbg. 2 hour pp sugar 100-135. Meds bother stomach. Are numbers good enough? I test 3-4 times daily. Am I testing too much? I exercise 5-6 week.

I am not a Doc , the way I see it
Anything over 145 dose harm to your bod
if your not on insulin or other meds two to three times a day is ok
Best wishes

It really depends on what your dr says because everyone is different what works for me may not work for you. I test first thing in the am and again just before supper. My dr wants me between 105-120. Thou I've been staying between 93 and 105. I walk or ride a bike every nite. Hope this helps.
