Ideal blood glucose ranges

The table below outlines glycemic reccomendations for adults who are not pregnant:

A1c < 7%
Preprandial 80–130 mg/dL (4.4–7.2 mmol/L)
Peak Postprandial 180 mg/dL (10.0 mmol/L)

Glucose target ranges should be personalized to each patient according to the duration of the disease, the patient's age, life expectancy, known cardiovascular and microvascular complications or any other complications, hypoglycemia unawareness, and any other individual factors.
