After reading some posts, I see that there are different measurements involved with blood sugar monitoring. In Australia we are metric and use mmol/L as a measurement, thus;
4.0-8.0 mmol/L is pretty normal
3.5-6.0 before meals and up to 8.0 two hours after meals is ideal
6-7 before and up to 10 two hours after is satistfactory.
I use an accu-chek advantage (although I see the US version has a different casing....or we get old stock!).
So, what are your measurements in and what are your tolerances?
