What Should Be Your Average Low And High Of Glucose Numbers Each Day?

If you are looking for "near normal control" your lows should never be below 4.0 mmols/72 and your high should never exceed 7.8 mmols/140

In practicality if your "daily average" BG was 6.0 mmols/108 that would result in a "normal" A1C of 5.4%

Lot's of numbers 😁

So basically if your average fasting numbers (which "should be" your lowest numbers of the day) fall anywhere in the 4.0-6.0 mmols/72-108 range with 5.0/99 being "perfect" and

Your highest "clinically relevant numbers" (because even non-diabetics spike after eating) which should be 2 hours after a meal should fall in the 5.0-7.8 mmol/90-140 - so any "high average" in that range and you are cruising along with likely as good of control as you would ever need and you would avoid most or all complications
