1. Poppie, I'm not sure if the meter booklet will give you guidelines about
blood sugar levels. Actually, this is where doctors and medical associations have different parameters. Please read the link in my signature which goes to a site that has lots of information about
blood sugar, including a section "What is normal blood sugar?" I will say that I do not follow what the ADA (the Amer. Diabetes Assoc.) suggests which is that diabetics have a higher blood sugar goal than what a non-diabetic would have. I try to keep my blood sugar what real normal is (a non-diabetic's) not what they say is acceptable for a diabetic.
2. It doesn't matter who uses a blood sugar meter. The meters are not made specifically for any particular group of people, non-diabetics, diabetics, etc.
3. I "think" the side of the hand or any place on the hand is fine for testing. Evidently, testing on other areas of the body will not give accurate blood sugar readings at the time it's being taken. For example, if you take it on the leg (thigh), I've read that the reading shows what the actual blood sugar was about
15/20 minutes prior to that time.
