So I recently came across On the very front page there is a very helpful chart that shows normal fasting blood glucose levels and normal post meal glucose levels.

I knew that normal fasting glucose levels were 70-108, but I thought those were normal levels all of the time. So I've been keeping even my post meal glucose numbers below about 100.

After reading that chart, I've decided I can let my numbers go a bit higher than I have been. I just wanted to share that site, because that chart was very helpful for me.

When I took my classes at the hospital they gave us a chart for recording your bg levels with a space to also record what you've eaten. It shows bg ranges for non-diabetic and diabetics after fasting, (when you get up in the am) and before and after meals.

This was only given as a guideline. Please talk with your doctor to see what he's looking for.

Acceptable Ranges:
Fasting: 70-120 mg/dl
Before Meals: 70-120
2 Hours After Meals: 140 or less
Bedtime: 80-140

I hope it helps. I also joined diabetic diabetic secrets. There's alot of good info. Some of the areas about nutrition are a little difficult for me to understand though. I'm not sure I want to get that intense about all of the things they discuss.
