The last time I checked (a long time ago) the American diabetes Association said before meal blood sugar and fasting should be 100 or less. 2 hours after a meal 150.
Now they say Before meal 70-130 and 2 hours after a meal 180 or less. The new target for A1c is 7.
that is an average blood sugar reading of 154. Why is everyone still trying to get A1c down to 5
or less? Has your doctor been updated. I know why they changed, because their experiments with
tight control using drugs and insulin and no diet, killed people they had to stop early because of the deaths. I knew this as I read medical journals. I told my doctor and he agreed with me. Those bastards, they wouldn't admit to their failure up front so we would know. Those drugs are dangerous,
if you can get your blood sugar to an A1c of 7 with out drugs, you will be much better off than an A1c of 5 and those drugs. I have never had an A1c below 7 in the last 20 years and I have no problems
and don't take drugs. I suggested to my doctor that try to get my A1c down to five. He said NO don't do that. He is up to date.
