Hi everybody- We are from Canada
-my HUsband Barrie is 54, he foud out 2 years ago he was a type #1 diabetic
He'd had years, of  "drunkin staggering, mossiness, vision loss, headaches, seizure like trance episodes,..."/ he was single till age 50 when he marrried me
and I noticed SOMETHING was   DEFINATELY WRONG so we sought medical help
when he got diagnosed his sugar was 53
normal in Canada   is    4 - 6     you dont watn higher than 8-9-10
if you get to 21 then you need  more insulin....
 
lately he has been waking up mid morning( he works nights)
shakey... I happened to be home... his Blood sugar level was 1.4
 
tooooooooooooolow!
 
its happening more & more
im thinking because he is working now & lost some weight maybe his isnulin  needs to be adjusted
 
he takes 4 needles a day
 
NPH & rapid.
 2        2
 
we are seeing the dibetci clinc  at the end of this week,
 
Im just scared  someday we might   find him.....  
 
anyway... Im wondering   if this site could have a   Blood Sugar   Level Standard Comparison   Data  Page 
for Canadians   &A mericans, and maybe other countries use different standards to measure also.

Welcome to HealingWell. Sorry for the reason but always glad to make a new friend.

As far as the conversion table... we generally post a link and have peeps download it to their computer. Here are a few:

Conversion Table
Wikpedia Conversion Table
Blood Sugar (Glucose) Level Conversion Chart

Hope this helps.
