Can anyone please tell me what are the normal sugar levels in a type 2 diabetes, as my husband and I are having problems monitoring him.

When Target levels
Before meals 70 to 140
1 to 2 hours after the start of a meal below 180

you have to monitor BG level frequently.

Have you using Blood Glucose Meter for Monitoring?

after lunch I often work in the yard for l to 2 hrs and take my test when I come in. Does moving around after a meal increase the sugar in my blood more than sitting for the 2 hours?

any physical activity you perform will contribute to lowering your blood sugar level.
