Lesson #1

What is a good blood sugar level?

Regardless of the type of diabetes you have, it is imperative to maintain good control of your blood sugar. The normal amount of sugar in the blood ranges from about 70 to about 120 in people who don't have diabetes. Blood sugar will rise after eating, but should return to within the normal range in one or two hours. A good blood sugar range for most people with diabetes is from about 70 to 150. This is before a meal or four to five hours after your last meal. Your blood sugar should be less than 200 about 2 hours after your last meal.

It is important to remember that everyone is different. A good blood sugar range for you may not be the best for someone else. Be sure to check with your doctor about the best blood sugar range for you.
