Should everyone be expected to have the same blood sugar level?

There are general guidelines for blood glucose management published by the American Diabetes Association (ADA) and the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE). However, each person needs to discuss with their physician or other professional staff -- such as a certified diabetes educator -- what their blood glucose goals should be. Differences in age and overall health status can influence recommended blood glucose targets.
