Good fasting readings should run between 72 to 126,
and a reading done 2 hours after the first bite of food(breakfast, lunch and
supper) should be less than 180, as this will mean an HbA1c(3 month glucose
average test) of less than 7%. To have a normal HbA1c of 4-6% would mean
having fasting readings between 72-108 and post meal readings less than 144.
For elderly patients the targets would be a fasting level 72-126, and post-meal
levels less than 216, with a major emphasis of avoiding low
glucose levels. As glucose targets are individualized, you
will need to ask your doctor what he wants you to try and achieve, but looking at your latest levels, it looks like you need to continue the medication
