Glucose levels

Someone just posted this on the ADA Type 2 message board, and I thought I'd share it here.  This is one of my favorite charts for recommended glucose levels.

               ADA    JOSLIN   AACE   DIABETIC
A1C            < 7.0   < 7.0   < 6.5  4.0-6.0
Fasting        90-130  90-130  <110   70-100
Post-Prandial* < 180   < 160   <140   70-140
*ADA: "Post-prandial glucose measurements should
be made 1–2 hours  after the beginning of the
meal, generally peak levels in patients with
ADA = American Diabetes Assn.   Joslin = Joslin Diabetes
Center  AACE= American Association Of Clinical
Endocrinologists  Non-diabetic= ranges compiled from goals
of all agencies.

My personal goals are "non-diabetic" numbers.  My last A1c was 6.2 with my personal goal being below 6.  Let's see if I can reach that by the time I get my next lab test in February 2010.
