To give you some perspective when you check your daily blood glucose: Normal non-diabetic fasting (pre-meal) blood glucose is between 70 mg/dL (3.9 mmol/L) and 92 mg/dL (5.0 mmol/L). Post-meal blood sugar (postprandial): Independent of what they eat, the blood sugars of truly normal (non-diabetic) people are under 120 mg/dL (6.6 mmol/L) one or two hours after a meal. Most normal (non-diabetic) people are under 100 mg/dL (5.5 mmol/L) two hours after eating.

Research Connecting Organ Damage with Blood Sugar Level
Post-meal blood sugars of 140 mg/dl (7.8 mmol/L) and higher and fasting blood sugars over 100 mg/dl (5.6 mmol/L) cause permanent organ damage and cause diabetes to progress.

Diabetes Is Not A Disease Of Blood Sugar!

Eat To Your Meter
So, here is how you “eat to your meter.”  Take a blood glucose reading before a meal. Eat your meal. If you are NOT diabetic, test your blood glucose 1 hour after a meal (if diabetic, test 1 1/2 hours after a meal. If you are diabetic and commonly experience blood glucose levels over 200, then test 2 hours after a meal).
If you experience more than a 25-30 point spike in your blood glucose between your pre- and post-meal readings, then identify the carbohydrate (grain, starch, legume, or fruit) on your plate. THAT FOOD IS NOT YOUR FRIEND!

Organ & Nerve Damage with BG over 140
Research Connecting Organ Damage with Blood Sugar Level
Post-meal blood sugars of 140 mg/dl (7.8 mmol/L) and higher and fasting blood sugars over 100 mg/dl (5.6 mmol/L) when found in association with those higher than normal post-meal blood sugars, cause both permanent organ damage and the worsening of diabetes.

Nerve Damage Occurs when Blood Sugars Rise Over 140 mg/dL (7.8 mmol/L) After Meals
Researchers found that the length of time a patient had experienced this nerve pain correlated with how high their blood sugar had risen over 140 mg/dl on the 2-hour glucose tolerance test reading.
