    Your 12 after eating is quite high and you should certainly try to lower it. The other readings are not too bad.

    I find if I go to bed with a reading around 8.0 I can go through the night without the worry of a hypo and wake up at around 6.0, but it does depend what I have eaten for dinner that night. higher carb content in the meal tends to linger in m system for a while and I wake up about 7 - 8 ish but I can't go to bed less than high 7's or 8

    Average blood sugars on tested levels are not true representations, HbA1c is the only real indicator.
