Stacy Wiegman, PharmD, Pharmacy, answeredThe reading on your glucose monitor kit is the amount of sugar in your blood. These results are measured in milligrams of glucose per deciliter of blood (mg/dL). Your doctor can tell you what range your personal readings should fall in. However, after eight hours of fasting, a typical diabetic person’s ideal reading should fall between 90 and 130 mg/dL. If you test before meals, your blood sugar level should be between 70 and 130 mg/dL. You reading should be no more than 180 mg/dL if you test an hour or two after eating.Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.
