Hi,

normal and target fasting should be 70 - 95.

2 hours After eating should be < 120.  Ideally it will be not much higher than your fasting nubmers.

If your blood sugar is high after eating, you may wish to try eating less carbs at that meal next time.  You can adapt what you eat to reduce how high your sugars go.

You want to be < 140 al the time, if possible.

If your sugars are 'off' for fasting in the morning, you may want to make sure that you have a 'bedtime' snack that is high in protein- no/very low carbs.  Also, make sure you are drinking plenty of water and getting about 20 minutes of exercise each day.  

You may want to get more specifics from your doctor and some guidance about your goals- this article can help give you a general idea about testing:

Also, if you have a smart phone, Sugar Sense is a great app and tool to help you.  Here's a link to the apps you can check out:
