    RE: i need to know my goal when i test my blood

    Set your goals to what you feel you can safely achieve (especially if you are on insulin). Many T2s seek to achieve as normal as possible bgs (blood glucose levels). So that means above 70 (at any time of day), less than 100 (fasting) and less than 140 two hours after a meal.

    And yes, through experiments, they've found a significant drop off of the rate of complications if your a1c is at or below 7%, but you need to keep something in mind. 7% means an average bg of 155. So a lot of the time you would be a lot higher than that. Therefore an a1c lower than 7% is both achievable and healthy. IMHO
