    Well before I eat I like it to be about 4ish, when fasting 6ish, after eating 8ish, those readings would be in a perfect world and they are not going to happen because I am diabetic. Other than that as long as my bs is in single figures whether it be 3.2 or 9.4 I am happy.
    I think expecting someone who has diabetes to have perfect bs readings is like expecting someone who has state-of-the-art prosthetic legs to walk perfecty...just my analogy :)
