      Hi, Kelvin. Type 2 here, on oral meds. This is a very good question. I didn't see how long you have been at this. I believe this may be the single worst issue for the medical community to solve. How do you manage your day numbers, if you can't count on your overnight numbers?The experts do not even REALLY know. They keep guessing. The human body is not a predictable machine. All you can do is learn for yourself what works. Learn what it feels like if it is low, and have a low carb breakfast if...

      Hi Kelvin, your not the only one. What is low to you? We always keep some orange juice in the refrigerator when we need to bring our numbers up fast. You drink and wait 15 minutes then test again. If it isn't at a good number you drink some more. I am so glad that your cereal works!!! I usually am ok in the morning but my companion has been getting a lot of morning lows lately. Do you just take pills?

      I haven't heard of a new guide but if there is one I would like to know too. I know lower than 7 on the a1c test has always been considered good under the American Diabetes guidelines. I don't remember the name of the organization but a group of endocrinologists have another guide line that is lower. I would like to have "tight" control define to be honest. I know it can very with different ages, and states of health and there is usually progression of diabetes with time that can make it...

      I think the guidelines are issued by two groups. America Diabetic Association and AMA, I believe and they are not exactly the same. "Normal" is from 4.0 to 6.0, but studies have questioned the wisdom and safety of medicating to below the 6.0. My doc goes with the 6.5 or less, so she is never happy with me. I am happy with under 7.0...limited meds and reasonable diabetic diet. I also haven't heard anything newer than these numbers, but will keep an eye out.
