Is there a chart telling you what readings are high and which ones are low? We have a new meter, and I don't know if 130 or 230 is high or low.


Please talk to your doctor or diabetes educator as soon as possible. In order to get the most out of blood glucose monitoring, you need to know how to interpret results! If you did not have diabetes, your blood sugar would be in the range of approximately 60-120 mg/dl. If you have diabetes you will need to work with your own diabetes clinician to determine your goals, and what to do if you are out of your desired range.
