Hi Jonah. Excellent question. That was one of the first things that I did when I got blood testing strips in the early 80's. Meters we're not common then. Amazingly, I found that 180 mg/dl was my threshold when sugar started appearing in my urine. That is pretty much the common value mentioned in text books. I hope all is well with you, Ken.

when you started using a meter, did you find out how high your blood sugar had to go before you started having sugar in the urine?

Hi Marie, That was my mother and fathers diligence at the time. I don't recall myself starting to actually keep my own logs/diary until a few years later. Yes, that 20-4 was my NPH and Regular insulin dose. I hope things are going well for you! Ken
