Welcome to the "pin cushion club". Anything under 120 should be safe. Under 100 is better

My pharmacist says anything under 10 mmol (2 hours after eating) is good.

!0 equates to a 180, which is a common American/Canadian/Australian/(name a country) Diabetes Association recommendation. Studies, however, have indicated that damage can occur above 7.8 (140) anytime. The numbers ToddAnd Margo suggested are 6.7 (120) and 5.6 (100).

Maybe I can get lower numbers once I start the paleo book.

If you eat low carb high fat you can be assured your "numbers" will improve! Most everyone on this website, that have followed the low carb high fat model have found this to be true (only newbies may not yet of had the experience)....My A1c went from above 9+ to 5.8 in six months....as an example of what to expect! But, you have to go low carb and increase your fat intake to offset the loss of carbs, this is the real trick to avoid hunger and cravings....

Get your Glycemic Load down to 15 or under per day. Yo just add them up. Here are some good links:


Best source of carb and glycemic load information:
http://nutritiondata.self.com/

Lifestyle:
https://www.marksdailyapple.com/how-...mal-blueprint/

And upper body exercise. DO NO exercise that makes your body think you are running for your life -- your liver will pump out glycogen more than a carb loaded meal. Make sure you enjoy your exercise. Upper body is the best for me. A walk with a dog, fishing, gardening, chopping wood, etc.. Don't forget playing with your friends (see lifestyle above). Family/tribe is very important.

180 ???? Yikes! That is scary. Your kidney start to expel blood sugar at 160. Get a better pharmacist!

I don't know what Glycemic load is. Do you mean 15g of carbs a day? I clicked on the first link, filled out the fields, and printed out the results. I hate exercise (I have some physical problems that make it very painful). There's one thing I can do but I got bored with it after a few months. As for friends and family, as a schizophenic I'm too paranoid to be around either of these (so basically, I have no friends and I have a very small family who probably secretly hate me). I'm far more stable alone.
