Blood Sugar Level Ranges

Tweet Understanding blood glucose level ranges can be a key part of diabetes self-management. This page states 'normal' blood sugar ranges and blood sugar ranges for adults and children with type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes and blood sugar ranges to determine people with diabetes. If a person with diabetes has a meter, test strips and is testing, it's important to know what the blood glucose level means. Recommended blood glucose levels have a degree of interpretation for every individual and you should discuss this with your healthcare team. In addition, women may be set target blood sugar levels during pregnancy. The following ranges are guidelines provided by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) but each individual’s target range should be agreed by their doctor or diabetic consultant. Recommended target blood glucose level ranges The NICE recommended target blood glucose levels are stated below for adults with type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes and children with type 1 diabetes. In addition, the International Diabetes Federation's target ranges for people without diabetes is stated. [19] [89] [90] The table provides general guidance. An individual target set by Continue reading >>

    Different Meter Readings

    I am Type2 diabetic diagnosed 7 months ago. I check my sugar 3 times a day. Everytime I check it I always check 2 more times to see what numbers I get just to be sure. This morning within 1 minute I got 3 different readings…107/118/129…am I doing something wrong? It's like this all the time. It's a brand new meter my dr gave me right out of the box. Strips are new too from pharmacy. The experation date is 1/12…Last night 3 hours after eating it was 82/95/105…all within one minute. Does this happen to anyone else? And is 82 too low? My family dr of 16 years has not explained anything to me about diabetes. I am learing from this site. Glad u are all here. Thanks, Sharon

    `1. A 10-20% variance is normal. 2 did you use the same finger or site? The 3rd and 4th fingers may be the best although I can also use my thumb. The difference is in ease of getting a decent sized blood drop.

    A lot of replys and a LOT of info to process.
    I am Probably repeating a lot, so please bear with me, but I don't know what was already said, but worth repeating anyways.
    The general rule of thumb is that no individual reading is as important as keeping track of your reading trends over time.
    Meters are intended to give you a snapshot of the present, but as you discovered, your readings can vary, even moments apart. This is especially true if you test using different meters and strips. Testing different sites will give different reading as well.
    As long as your readings are not too high or too low, and you are feeling "okay", keeping a log is the best way to track your results.
    It can take time for your medical team to find the right combination of diet, exercise and meds that work best for you, and even when they do, it can take a week or more for the tweeks they make to treatment to level out.
    Keeping track of your readings around all three meals is great!
    As you get more leveled in over time, usually, spot checks once a day at different times will be fine, but the way you are doing it now is good, until then.
    Sadly, ones condition will change over time, that will require adjustment to keep our condition well maintained.
    Still, most can expect good results and a normal life with little reason for disappointment.
    Welcome, and keep up the good work, you sound off to a great start.

Your diabetes care team will set individual blood sugar targets, but as a general guide, the NHS recommends: Note the date, time, results, and any recent activities: Medication and dosage taken What you ate How much and what kind of exercise you were doing That will help you and your doctor see how your treatment is working. Well-managed diabetes can delay or prevent complications that could affect your eyes, kidneys and nerves. Diabetes doubles your risk of heart disease and stroke, too. Fortunately, controlling your blood sugar will also make these problems less likely. Tight blood sugar control, however, means a greater chance of low blood sugar levels, so your doctor may suggest different targets. Continue reading >>

  2. butterflylynn

    Yes it is normal that your blood sugars go up after you eat. Have you just started Metformin & are you on any other diabetic medications if so what ?
    I suggest you keep a log of your sugar before & after you eat. Then share those numbers with your doctor & see if they feel the numbers are normal.
    Also are you on the extended release Metformin ER?
    Diabetes is hard to get under control so it is very important that you provide your blood sugar numbers to your doctor. Best of luck & let me know if I can help in any other way. Best of luck, Kathy

    About six months ago, i started getting anxiety. At first, it was just annoying but after a while, it started getting more intense. The anxiety was so strong i fell into a very agitated form of depression. I could constantly hear my heart pounding in my chest, had anxiety and feelings of hopelessness and dread 24/7. I was so tired and wired i could barely stand up straight. I felt like i was walking around a haze.
    I cooperated with my GP, we did a full physical (including checking stuff like Thyroid and Celiac) which turned up nothing. She wanted to put me on Remeron (Mirtazapin), but i turned it down to pursue other solutions first.
    At first, i tried raising Serotonin using 5-htp, Tryptophan and eventually St John's Wort. No effect what so ever - except for one or two times when 5-htp made me almost euphoric, leading me to suspect my problem was indeed Serotonin, some way or another. I then tried raising GABA using L-Theanine, GABA, Valerian, Passion Flower etc. No effect. None. I then tried the catecholamines, using L-Tyrosine. This helped. Tyrosine managed to almost cure my anxiety, but it always came back.
    I thought long and hard about this and finally realized that since i would always bounce right back from the relief Tyrosine gave me, there might be something that i was doing in my everyday life that was the cause. I started by quadruple-checking my diet and that's when it dawned on me.
    On a normal day, i had on avarage 4 glasses of orange juice/apple juice which apparently contain more sugar than Coca-Cola. I hadn't even thought about it before. My entire depression/anxiety was nothing but low blood sugar, prompting my body to release adrenaline and cortisol, surpressing my serotonin, causing a highly agitated anxiety/depression. Tyrosine lowers cortisol and therefore helped. Insanely stupid. I was reading countless of books on advanced neuro-chemistry and my problem was fucking sugar-intake.
    I stopped sugar in every form, even fruit temporarly. I also had a Smoothie every morning consisting of protein powder, three raw eggs and coconut milk which kept me steady through the day. I also supplemented blood sugar-balancing Chromium (400 percent RDI), through a Multivitamin.
    It took about a week, and then i was back in the game. I'm now feeling pretty good and getting my life back together. I'm finding my way back to the blissful-state i usually experience, due to my morning meditation.
    I thought i would share this, if you are also suffering from depression/anxiety and are not responding to treatment, blood sugar might be something worth looking into.
    Any advice anyone has for me to help me on my road to full recovery is also greatly appreciated. I'm currently pretty worried that i might have done some lasting damage to my adrenals but hope not. Peace.

    This is a controversial topic that will garner a degree of down vote attention but since you've asked for any information that might assist you on your road to recovery, I'm going to bring up the issue of candida albicans.
    It's effectively a bacterial overgrowth in the lower intestines caused by over-consumption of antibiotics and/or sugar throughout one's life, which by itself is technically benign (and present natively in low levels), but when 'overgrown' its waste products are highly toxic and include things like acetylaldehyde. All of its toxic byproducts produce textbooks effects of anxiety/depression and their related symptoms such as cardiovascular, cognitive, and metabolic difficulties.
    As it is the waste products in particular to be worried about, these symptoms usually spike in relation to meals, particularly high-carbohydrate meals (of which simple sugar is the most 'candida-inducing'). There is a whole lot of bullshit and misinformation around the internet regarding candida, so I'd recommend wearing some thick spectacles and taking everything with a mountain of salt. I can just say I've personally dealt with the spectrum of symptoms candida sufferers seem to share, of which the recommended treatment completely alleviated over the course of a few months.
    Let me know if you'd like any more information or pointers in the right direction!

    The science on testing is sketchy but I believe it is a good theory. I would generally say, the gut biome is a diverse competition that has evolved in symbiosis. Since metabolism basically starts there, and houses the immune system and neurotransmitters, it would stand to reason that a modern diet could knock that out of balance and have negative effects. And candida by its chemical role seems like a good candidate for that.
