What Are Healthy Glucose Levels In Children?

Children grow rapidly, and their bodies need glucose for normal development. At the same time, young children can have problems recognizing or communicating the symptoms of low blood sugar or hypoglycemia. Consequently, healthy glucose levels in children are usually higher than healthy glucose levels in adults. Different children have different needs; your child's health care provider can determine the best glucose levels for your child as he grows and develops. Elevated glucose levels could indicate a need for diabetic testing. Video of the Day For children from birth to age 5, normal blood sugar targets are 100 to 200mg/dL. Fasting blood sugars should be near the low end of the range. Blood sugars after meals and before bedtime should be near the upper end of the range. If the blood sugar before bedtime is below 150mg/dL, your child's health care provider may recommend a bedtime snack and/or testing during the night. Ages 5 to 11 For children who are between the ages of 5 and 11, normal blood sugar targets are 70 to 150mg/dL. Fasting blood sugars should be nearer to 70mg/dL.

    Is There An Ideal Bedtime BG For You?

    I've been struggling with finding what my ideal bedtime BG should be in order to have an acceptable fasting number within range; with no great success. My numbers are all over the place and it'is frustrating me to no end.
    Here's a few examples:
    Bedtime: 116 Fasting: 148
    Bedtime: 145 Fasting: 115
    Bedtime: 119 Fasting: 137
    Bedtime: 97 Fasting: 147
    Bedtime: 166 Fasting: 134
    I'm aware that some of it has to do with liver dumping but at what point is the thing that's eluding me. And I'll admit that the "snack monster" can be one of my great nighttime demons, sometimes, but I never over do it and it's always a healthy snack.
    So I'm wondering if you've been able to find the balance and how did you do it? I know that because we're all different what works for you may not necessarily work for me but any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
