"What is the best method of testing glucose with a home meter befor
e and after meals for
a good baseline to compare in the future?"
Preprandial [b4 meal] levels should be in normal fasting
range of 60/70 to 99 mg/dl
Postprandial [2-3 hours after meal] range are as follows:
• Diabetics aim for
<141 mg/dl, optimum <121 mg/dl.
• In non
-diabetics, glucose peak ∼60 minutes after the start of a meal, rarely exceed 140 mg/dl, and return to preprandial fasting
