So sorry to hear that your husband is at risk- has he been to a doctor to get evaluated?  

This article has some good general information for understanding diabetes and what a good glucose reading is:


It's important that he get some goals for his levels from a doctor though, the doctor will be able to evaluate his specific case and will know better what levels he should be maintaining for fasting, and before and after meals.

Labs have different numbers. My doctor sets the limit of 180 after a meal and 70 the lowest limit. The lab sets 150 has highest level. A1C I'm told should be less than 7
