Blood Glucose Monitoring | Preparation & Expectations | Results and Values

What do the test results mean?

The National Institutes of Health, or NIH for short, gives the following recommendations for blood glucose levels.

  • Blood glucose before meals should be 80 to 130 mg/dL.
  • Blood glucose at bedtime should be 100 to 150 mg/dL.
  • These are general guidelines that should be discussed with the healthcare provider. The provider may recommend a specific value for an individual. The provider will also provide instructions for dealing with high or low blood glucose levels.
