you are monotiring the blood glucose you need to remember these values. early morning in empty stomach if you take a blood sugar test it should be with in 100mg/dl. and 2 hours after consuming food the test should read less than 135mg/dl.  regarding low blood sugar it is the symptoms not the values which is important. if you get symptoms like sweating, increased heart beat, bluring of vision, feeling of tierdness, dizziness and in severe cases momentery loss of consiciousness, all these indicate low sugars in blood

General Surgeon Dr. Biji Thomas George's  Response
The values above are correct but you must remember:
Don't focus too much on your exact values of blood sugar.
It is the path to stress and uncontrolled sugars and frustration.
Instead focus on lifestyle changes:
1. Proper diet after a very professional dietary counselling by a good nutritionist.
2. Regular and supervised exercise with daily and longterm goals.
3. Proper regimen of work/rest and relaxation.
Changes in your lifestyle will not only do wonders for your sugar levels but also increase your zest for life and bring positive energy to life...
