Default what is a good morning

I thought I was doing good. I read that numbers between 70 - 130 are good for before meals and nothing exceeding 180 after is good.

But as I read the "fasting BG" thread I feel like I must be missing something. My numbers have been in the low 100s, today was 109 I was happy or thought I should be until I read others peoples numbers that were lower than mine and they were not happy.

what is the goal for first thing in the morning?

To each, his own. Everyone's situation, lifestyle, medication etc. is different, so why should the numbers be the same ? Personally, if my numbers are bad, I know why they are bad, and that is what counts. As you deplete glycogen your prediction probability increases.

BTW any 2 digit number makes me smile.

fasting in double digits and post meal (2 hours) always below 140 is what my dic says. My personal goal (to be on safer side) is fasting at 85 and post meal always below 120 (even at peak)

Dr Bernstein recommends staying under 100 at all times, including after meals. He has a system that makes that possible. A part of his system is 12 grams maximum per meal of carbohydrates.

I'm a long ways from being there all the time, but that's what I aim for.

Hi TTM,

Take a look at BS101. She has a page on what good goals would be for BG. You then decide what will work for you.

Personally I'd love to be below 100 at all times. Not there yet, but working on it.

I try to stay under 100 at all times. I also got a little more motivation than others, don't want them ever to crack open my chest again.

morning fasting was 62, this morning. I had a cup of bullet proof coffee, several laps up and down the stairs, one hour later I was still 66.

And altho' I'd like to be under 100 most mornings, I'm happy enough near 100 fasting and always under 140, preferably around 120 all the time.

TTM - I started a thread on this a while back and got some really awesome input on numbers. I will go and try to find it for you, so you can read it.

- Here you go. I wondered the same as you did, as there is so much controversial advice on what "good" numbers are for diabetics. I asked this same question for discussion a few months ago. http://www.diabetesforum.com/diabete...ers-issue.html

MCS - although I've never dropped below 90, as my meds increase I wonder about it. Do you ever treat your low 60's in any way or just let it come up on its own? Do you feel ill when it's in the 60's?

I never treat in the 60s. I do not feel ill at those numbers. If it's continuing to drop which I can detect without testing. I will test just to be sure then treat. I awoke in the 40s yesterday. I did feel that, but did not treat. I would not suggest that for others. I just know how my body feels and reacts.
