Why Your “normal” Blood Sugar Isn’t Normal (part 2)

Hi, I just found this site and would like to participate. I will give my numbers, etc. First, my last A1c was 6.1, the doc said it was Pre-diabetes in January of 2014, OK, I get it that part, but what confuses me is that at home, on my glucometer, all my fastings were “Normal” however, back then, I had not checked after meals, so maybe they were the culprits. Now, I am checking all the time and driving myself crazy. In the morning sometimes fasting is 95 and other times 85, it varies day to day. Usually, after a low carb meal, it drops to the 80’s the first hour and lower the second. On some days, when I am naughty and eat wrong, my b/s sugar is still low, and on other days, I can eat the same thing, and it goes sky high, again, not consistent. Normally, however, since February, my fbs is 90, 1 hour after, 120, 2nd hour, back to 90, but, that changes as well. In February, of 2014, on the 5th, it was horrible. I think I had eaten Lasagne, well, before, my sugars did not change much, but that night, WHAM-O I started at 80 before the meal, I forgot to take it at the one and two hour mark, but did at the 3 hour mark, it was 175, then at four hours, down to 160, then at 5 hours, b Continue reading >>

    When considering the goals from the major diabetes authorities I have always preferred the much tighter guidelines of the AACE:
    Table 1. AACE-Recommended Glycemic Targets for Nonpregnant Adults2

    Treatment Goal
    Hemoglobin A1C
    Individualize on the basis of age, comorbidities, and duration of disease

    ≤6.5 for most
    Closer to normal for healthy
    Less stringent for “less healthy”
    Fasting plasma glucose (FPG)
    <110 mg/dL

    2-hour postprandial glucose (PPG)
    <140 mg/dL
    They also note the looser ADA 2hr target of <180 on that page. I consider that dangerously lax. Personally I have followed tighter goals than either for the past fifteen years. These targets, which I first encountered in Jennifer's Test, Test, Test, have worked very well for me:
    Fasting............................Under 110
    One hour after meals.......under 140
    Two hours after meals.....under 120
    or for those in the mmol parts of the world:
    Fasting............................Under 6
    One hour after meals......Under 8
    Two hours after meals....Under 6.5

    Re: Blood Glucose Goal Ranges WITH and WITHOUT Diabetes

    What I really like about this chart^ is that it compares glucose numbers for people with and without diabetes.
    Not only is that something I find interesting, but it seems like a lot of newbies wonder about this. Great link to have in the "prediabetes forum" (and/or the newbies forum), Nancy!

    "Just" really means "plus" keeping stress in check, getting enough sleep, changing my work schedule as needed, timing my meals and snacks, making time to take care of non-work and non-diabetes needs (as well as diabetes and work needs), and making time for just me, myself, and I. :-)
