Blood glucose after a meal one hour

Common Questions and Answers about Blood glucose after a meal one hour

blood-glucose

"What does this indicate and how serious is it?" Testing one hour after eating results in a false/positive. Glucose [blood sugar] from food consumed has not plateaued in your bloodstream and still is on the rise. Proper test times are: 1. Fasting - 8-10 hours no food or colored liquids, usually done first thing in morning. 2. Preprandial - Before meal to get a baseline measurement 3. Postprandial - 2-3 hours after a meal to see how foods consumed affected glucose levels. 4.
I heard a lot of people fail the 1 hour but pass the 3 hour one. So if you dont pass the one hour you still have one more chance before they assume you have gd.
I've been checking my sugars every say 4 X's a day and have not had one issue with my sugar being too high and I have not made any changes to my diet other than smaller carb portions. Realistically, most women do not take in that much glucose in one meal unless they are really on a binge ...
After much debating and searching for alternatives, I decided to have the 2h one, which is just one blood draw. You have to take 75grams of glucose and then get blood drawn and that's it.
Doesn't matter, its the same for everyone. Best time to test is 2-3 hours after a meal. You're getting a false positive testing 1 hour after as your glucose hasn't plateaued. Its not wrong to do, just too soon. "I wonder why it would be high in only the morning after I eat...lot of stress...morning anxiety." Four common causes for high glucose are: 1. The foods you eat 2. Not enough exercise 3. Dehydration And, in your case... 4.
I am new with diabetes and really don't know why it went too high to 196 and fell back to 115 in one hour. Other than that, my fasting blood glucose range is from 70 to 90, and my BG 2 hours after meal and before bedtime are form 90 to 110. I've been checking my blood sugar for the last two weeks after my doctor gave me the meter. The question to you was right after meal, not before. Before meal is under 100. As I said, I checked right after meal because I was curious.
I had to monitor my blood sugar four times a day - fasting in the morning and one hour after every meal. I did really well during the day after meals...I quickly figured out what effected my blood sugar and what worked well for me. I kept my BS levels under the max (under 140 after meals). But my fasting blood sugar in the morning was too high - and I couldn't do anything about that. (MD wanted it below 90 in the morning.) So my MD put me on 5 units of insulin before bed.
It's like orange syrup that you put in soda, without the carbonation! Anyway, I did a 3-Hour glucose test a few weeks ago (and PASSED, thank You Jesus) and I had to go lay down in a back room because I started feeling so ill (and I wasn't pregnant!). And you're right... no news is good news! You usually get the results at your next appointment.
If your blood glucose was 61 an hour or two after breakfast, especially if your breakfast was fairly high carb (such as cereal, bread, etc) you might have a specific type of hypoglycemia called reactive hypoglycemia which is people who have low blood sugar after a meal high in carbs. I would suggest seeing your doctor and getting tested to see what type of hypoglycemia you have and to make sure you aren't pre-diabetes.
Also, it may not happen again for many jumps, and then out of the blue (pardon the pun) it comes back after a jump. Since you enjoyed it so much, you owe it to yourself to find out. I hope it was a one time thing, and you can continue to jump! Good luck and take care.
I too have had incidences of a racing heart (usually about 100bpm) about 30 minutes after eating a meal. I'm a 35 year old female, 115 pounds, exercise regularly and generally am in good health (other than dealing with low blood sugar). My heart has been checked as well and comes out clean as does my bloodwork. About a year ago, I suffered with panic attacks (daily) with that lasting about a month and a half. [I have to credit the Lord with healing me from those.
We were allowed to keep the monitors and I have been doing some random blood glucose checks on myself when I am not feeling well to help myself better understand lows. Anyways today, about 1/2 an hour after eating I decided to do a check and my blood level was at 215 mg/dl. I thought I may have had something on my hands so I rewashed them really well and rechecked my blood and was again over 200. Can this happen to someone who does not have diabetes??
You could also try treating fatigue with small amounts of juice (1/2 cup) and protein such as nuts or cheese to see if you feel better in about a half hour after nibbling when you feel fatigued. I am not a doctor, by the way, but am a type 1 diabetic of many years who has lots of relatives and friends who deal wtih hypoglycemia, so I have done lots of reading on the subject.
and I know when I get my supplies ima start eating strict im so not ready to eat strict but for the baby I have too and speaking of supplies we poke after two hrs after of breakfast lunch and dinner?
I have read the fasting and post-meal (+2 hours) glucose levels for individuals with and without diabetes. Some "reputable" diabetes sites recommend that "normal" blood glucose levels are under 180 two hours after a meal, while other sites recommend under 140, suggesting that 180 is too high even after two hours. I've even read various doctors give different recommendations that are between 120 and 180 two hours after a meal.
I just got a call taht I failed teh oen hour glucose tst- which is SOSOOO weird for me- as I have always had low blood sugar- passing out- etc. My last pregnancy- I fainted and broke a bone from having low blood sugar- have to have juice/complex carbs. ANyhow- so it got me thinking that I ate a candy bar 1.5 before hand. Thsi test was also different than my others- as they took blood beforehand with my others and then following the yummy drink. Would eating teh candy bar affect it?
It's just like the one hour one except you get two bottles of Juice and you have blood taken every hour. Yes eating a full meal late a night can affect the results and make it higher. At least it did for me. I wouldn't worry until you do the three hour one and it came back high. It means you would have to watch what you eat.
You might want to test your fasting blood sugar first thing before any food which should be under 100. Then try two hours after a meal, do a different meal each day. Those numbers should be under 140. This is very useful to tell you which foods you can eat which allow you to be in target range and which spike your blood sugar too high.
* Bedtime – to compare against morning fasting level Secondly, it appears you are experiencing what they call Reactive Hypoglycemia, which is low blood sugar that occurs after a meal — usually one to three hours after eating. Things to do to combat this: * Eat several small meals and snacks throughout the day, no more than three hours apart.
Then I drink the glucose drink 30 minutes before my appointment and they draw my blood exactly one hour after consuming the drink.
I am somewhat in denial because when I went for my Glucose Tolerance Test, just before the 1 hour blood drawing, I felt hypoglycemic. However, that test came back 185 instead of <180, so it was high. In any case, I've met with a nutritionist & am working on modifying my diet. I was told to check my glucose levels in the morning (fasting) and 1 hour after the beginning of each meal. They told me what the levels should be, but I would like a second opinion.
I failed both the 1 and 3 hour tests. I have to check my blood sugar levels 4 times a day and was on a low carb diet. I was allowed 30 grams for snacks and 45 grams for meals. It was really hard keeping track of it! You can still have ice cream but that has to be your complete snack and only 1/2 a cup. :) I checked my levels for 2 weeks everyday and never had it be too high so my dr told me I can just check every other day and will be fine.
A random glucose test is not a glucose tolerance test. A random glucose test is just that. They measure your blood glucose at just any time when you're eating normal meals. This does not qualify as a screening for Gestational Diabetes. Depending on how long after your last meal and what you ate, the results could be normal, even if your blood sugar is not.
I really doubt that it will but just make sure ur last meal is a bad one... thats what happen to me... the first time I had a soup for dinner which contains a lot of sodium ....and I failed that one.... my second glucose test I made sure to eat chicken salads all week!! Lol especially the night before... and I passed!! Good luck!!
Also, I have read lots of stories on here on women that failed the first glucose test, and did just fine on the 3 hour. I wish you luck!!
So I went there and they took my blood after they tested it for sugar and passed, they gave me some orange juice to drink and had to sit there for an hour and not allowed to go anywhere because of the probability of fainting or getting sick. After the hour has passed they took a blood sample and I felt getting sick but not allowed to vomit so they had me lying down. I had to stay for another hour after they took my blood the second time and then another sample was taken.
My old doctor never even mentioned it. I had a ton of blood tests taken but never a glucose ? Weird, I'll have to bring that up to my new doctor.
Could someone tell me the glucose values for a non diabetic for the fasting (pre-breakfast), one hour after eating, two hours after eating. And what is considered to be low for a non diabetic? My son has type 1 and I know what his glucose values should be for these times and I know that anything under 80 is considered to be low for him. I have been having some lows (46, 33 and LO on the meter) as well as a reading of 196 one hour after a lower carb lunch..
It's better to know if you have diabetes than trying to find a way to beat the test and go the remainder of the pregnancy with high blood sugar and likely a huge, over nourished, baby as a result. Do what they tell you to do prior to testing. It's for the health of the baby.
