I have been trying to keep all of the readings under 100. If I get a reading of 106 or 112, I feel like I have failed. What is an acceptable range for the numbers?

I'd also like to chime in that here in canada, there are higher levels for post meal readings too. 2 hrs Post meal here, up to about 10 mmol (180 mg/dl) is considered normal.

First off, this is really a subject which you should discuss with a Dr.

Easy there friend. You may be working too hard and expecting too much from yourself.

I can't speak for others, but I am happy with a BG (blood glucose) reading anywhere 70 mg/dl and 120 mg/dl, and if it might happen to creep up somewhere below the 130s mg/dl range I don't get too bent out of shape about it.

There are folks who start to feel hypo anywhere below 80 mg/dl but that is them and they gotta do what helps them,

However if you don't necessarily feel hypo at the lower levels, 70mg/dl is generally considered the upper border of low.

God's best to you
