Everyone has individual goals for diabetes management. You should work with your doctor to set your target goals for self-monitored blood glucose levels. However, the American Diabetes Association suggests the following general guidelines for people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes*:

  • Fasting or before meals (preprandial) – 90 to 130 mg/dl (5.0 to 7.2 mmol/l)
  • At bedtime – 110 to 150 mg/dl (6.1 to 8.3 mmol/l)
  • Two hours after eating (postprandial) – under 180 mg/dl (<10.0 mmol/l)
    The American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists suggests slightly different goals for SMBG*:
    -Fasting – <110 mg/dl
    -Two hours postprandial – <140 mg/dl

    *Note: all values are plasma.

"Due to sacroiliac problems, I had great difficulty walking and with other physical difficulties. I was fortunate to have become acquainted with Swetha Jairam. Under her training, I have improved remarkably. With her experience in physical fitness, she can adjust her exercise programs to any age group -- including my own. She is talented, knowledgeable and skilled, young lady. I can recommend her highly without any reservations."
