    Ideally, I'd love her to be between 70 and 95.

    I'd like to see between 80 and 125.
    I see that maybe 30% of the time. And that's with corrections either way during the night.
    One thing I've noticed is that the day goes better if it starts at a better number, another reason I test and correct at night -- not just because I want to avoid the lows that might happen, but because I want to avoid her waking up at 300.

    We CGM, so I'm happiest with anything in the 70-120 range. Our endo's office tells me to target 120 for bedtime. I'd probably sleep better if our correction factor didn't overshoot that number consistently.:p Oops...I changed it this morning after she went from 160 to 83 with only .45 units given. That wasn't a sensitivity factor of 1:65!! I'll see what she wakes at tomorrow.

    I like 80-120, sort of like a blood pressure. ;)

    I am happy waking up under 180 and above 80. This year I resolved to get 6 or below A1c.

    We have been so wacky on numbers lately that I'm good with 80-170. Lately though, we've had quite a few 200's and 300's so we're basal testing tonight and having him wear the CGM. (We really use it when he's out of whack or when we're testing.)

    im happy with anything from 5.5-8.5 (100-150) in the morning but can go lower and higher than that depending on previous days BS levels.

    Since her thyroid meds have to be given half an hour to an hour before she has any food, I'm comfortable with anything 90-130 (her range is 80-150)...She's been sick so it hasn't been in that range for a few days. Yesterday was 170...today was 513. :(
