I am a Type 2 diabetic and was just diagnosed about 4 years ago. I'm uneducated about Type 1 diabetes.
Is the average blood sugar numbers 80 to 120 which my doctor said is normal. Is that normal for say a 2 year old also?

My son got Type one diabetes last year when he was 2. They ask us to keep him in the range between 100-200. As he gets older they said that we would begin to tighten the range and keep better control. They said when he is a teenager that it needs to be tightly controlled. We struggle now even with the bigger range in keeping his numbers where they ought to be. I can imagine how hard it is going to be with a smaller window. So yes he is 3 now and we "hope" to see numbers between 100-200
