Again, my low is set at 70 mg/dL. My high (from the other day) is set at 180 mg/dL – – I think I wrote mmol/dl, I was tired! In either case this is not set as a “range,” but merely a number!
I like to keep mine higher than a normal range. Anytime I get an arrow or two straight down I want time to fix the problem before I get to zombie stage.
If you use time in range reports, what blood glucose level is set as the upper threshold for your “Low” range? If you have different target range settings depending on time of day, please answer with the Low setting at noon in your time zone. Cancel reply

I use 80 because the time lag is so great. If I were to make it 70 I’d already be sweating by the time I got the alert. Then there’s the delay in the glucose taking effect. Altogether, I believe it’s about 30 minutes.
