If you are American you might check out the American Diabetic Association site at www.diabetes.org/ for some helpful information to what you seek plus their great forums that might also be able to help you with the Qs you seek.
If you are outside of the US, a normal pre-prandial (before meal) blood glucose level should be between 4 and 7 mmol/l. After eating (post-prandial) levels should be less than 10 mmol/l when tested 90 minutes after a meal. When going to bed for the night, levels should be about 8mmol/l.
If you are in the US, then blood sugar levels should be first thing in the morning, before breakfast: 80 to 120 mg/dl, Before other meals: 80 to 120 mg/dl, 2 hours after meals: 140 to 160 mg/dl and before bed: 100 to 140 mg/dl
