Target Test Results for Canadians with Diabetes

Part of the Diabetes For Canadians For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Monitoring your blood glucose levels day-to-day is critical in order to properly manage your diabetes. The Canadian Diabetes Association guidelines recommend that most adults with type 1 or type 2 diabetes aim for the following readings:

  • Blood glucose before meals: 4.0 to 7.0 mmol/L

  • Blood glucose two hours after meals: 5.0 to 10.0 mmol/L (5.0 to 8.0 if your A1C remains above 7.0 despite having before-meal readings of 4.0 to 7.0 and two-hour after-meal readings of 5.0 to 10.0)

  • A1C level of 7.0 percent or less (up to 8.5 for some individuals)

  • LDL cholesterol of 2.0 mmol/L or less

  • Urine albumin/creatinine ratio (“ACR”) less than 2.0 mg/mmol

  • Blood eGFR equal to or greater than 60 mL/min

  • Blood pressure less than 130/80
