Your Average BG Level

27 posts in this topic

I know this is far from an exact science, but I'm just curious.

 

Mine is 111.

 

I base that on my last 59 readings going back 18 days.

 

Best approximation: what do you think your average BG level has been over the last few weeks?

My best guess would be 130 +/-5 with my highs being morning fasting numbers. However, I have seen a two scary numbers recently when testing post-meal. So the actually number (if we could get an actual number) is probably a little higher. My lesson learned from those scary numbers is I have pretty clear evidence that a I react very badly to hamburger buns and one is bad enough to shoot my BG levels WAY too high even when that is the only significant carb source I eat.

My average over the past 30 days is 114.6 I used a program from DLife to track my BG's, and it gives me 7, 14, 30 and 90 day averages.

 

BTW....I still test over 8 times a day to monitor and control my BG's (without any medication).

Mine is about 100 but I only do 3 tests most days. It lines up pretty much with the Bayer HbA1c I did a few months ago

My average fasting BG for the last 30 days is 98, according to my meter.

I check my BGs between 4 and 6 times a day.

My fasting numbers are lower than my A1C which was 5.7 (approx 111).

I think your A1C is a better indication of your true fasting number, unless you have a CGMS (Type 1's correct me if I'm wrong) or are testing 12 or more times a day.

Just my $.02. :cool2:

I would say mine over the last few weeks has been 65-75. Had Lantus reduced starting last Friday. Haven't experienced any hypos like I was but I'm taking my Lantus in the morning instead of night now. I'm suppose to keep a log and fax it to the doc after 2 weeks but I think I need my Lantus reduced some more.

Last 7 days (58 tests): 88

Last 14 days (112 tests): 89

Last 30 days (250 tests): 93

 

That's off my meter, and includes "high" readings where I hadn't washed my hands, then washed them and retested. My SugarStats average for the past 7 days (excludes the tests for which I retested) is 86, my 14-day average is 88, and my 30-day average is 92.

121- 14 days- 86 tests

117- 30 days- 150 tests (from my meter)

124- 50 days (from my log) oh and it's kind of anniversary - 50 days testing and taking Metformin...

 

Well, it's comforting in a way to know that I'm not the only one in 100th. I was under impression that everybody is in 80th 90th.

Well, tomorrow will be 2 weeks from diagnosis and from starting my Metformin, embracing a low carb diet and exercising every day 30-60 minutes. My morning numbers are still a pain in the behind---147 this am and yesterday am as well. Those are the lowest morning numbers I have had. So, maybe they are declining? But just not as quickly as they had been?

 

My 2 hour after meals numbers are improving. I was happy to see my lowest number yet (114) but that was 4 hours after a meal. I wonder when the Metformin will start working and will I know? I am telling myself to be patient and just keep doing all the right stuff b/c it WILL make a difference. I just want instantaneous results. I know---I'm like a bratty 2 year old! :biggrin:

Someone here recommended the app "OnTrack". I downloaded it last week and last night I got around to loading the readings for the month of June. For June my average is a little lower than I expected: 123 for the month trending down with an average of 111 for the past week.

 

This is a pretty cool little app. I showed it to a fellow diabetic here at the office. He was downloading it this morning.

According to my meter, my average bgs for the past 14 days are 85. The average for the last 30 days was 86. I sure hope my A1c reflects that because it is always a higher surprise.

I pretty much live between 70-90 with my avg being around 85. Recently since I stopped the mega amounts of fish oil my BG level has jumped up 10-15 pts over night. My FBG's were for over a month in the mid 70's, now they are in the high 80's.

Ah well, I guess I'm one of those whose A1C does not match his avg bg. My A1c is 5.9%, which translates to 123 mg/dl.. this is very different from the measured 100 mg/dl over 30 days
