It's not that she is lying, but she has a goal for you. I have the same problems, my numbers run way higher than anyone likes, especially me. But my goal is still to keep mine under 140. If I could do that, I would be happy. Anything over 140 is where damage begins. So that is why she has a lower goal for you than the ADA.

No Ray, I would NOT agree that your Endo is a retard!

What you told her as ADA "facts" is incorrect. According to the ADA website "What Are the Target Ranges?" it says "•Before a meal (preprandial plasma glucose): 70–130 mg/dl" and then "1-2 hours after beginning of the meal (Postprandial plasma glucose)*: Less than 180 mg/dl" So if you are testing your BG before you eat they say it should be between 70 and 130 (that's a big difference from 150) and you can be up to 180 mg/dl 2 hrs after but it should not stay there.

With a BG level between 150 and 200 mg/dl you probably have several complicaitons. Because anything above 140 mg/dl for a length of time is generally considered complications range.

How much under 200 is your BG usually running?

Please get your BG levels down to the under 130 level!
