Table 1 ADA and AACE Glycemic Goals

From: Common crossroads in diabetes management

  ADA AACE
A1C < 7.0%* < 6.5%
FPG 90–130 mg/dL < 110 mg/dL
PPG < 180 mg/dL < 140 mg/dL
  1. A1C = glycated hemoglobin A1C; AACE = American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists; ADA = American Diabetes Association; FPG = fasting plasma glucose; PPG = postprandial plasma glucose.
  2. *Physicians and patients should attempt to achieve a level as close to normoglycemia (< 6.0%) as possible without experiencing serious adverse events.
