Re: Normal Blood Sugar?
First off, let me say that I am happy that you want to learn about his T1. My first word of advice to you is don't lecture. Just keep informed.
As for the numbers. To be in the "normal" glucose range, fasting should be less than 100, and 2 hours after the start of a meal should be less than 140.
In addition to that some of the important things for him to know are his basal rates and how to adjust them, his isf (insulin sensitivity factor - how many points 1 unit of insulin brings him down) and his insulin to carb ratio (how many carbs you can eat for 1 unit of insulin).
There are a number of folks here who take insulin, so feel free to ask lots of questions.
