Common Questions and Answers about Blood sugar levels 1 hour after eating


I was wondering about the reactive hypoglycemia and if that's what it could be. This lower <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>eating</span> didn't start until my <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugaran>s were under the normal limits all throughout the day. I realize it wasn't that low but it was lower than what I was used to. Also, I was wondering if you might know about normal insulin levels? She checked my insulin level and it was 6, she said 0-25 was normal???
I had went to the emergency last week because of some other symptoms that I have been having. They did a <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> work up and my <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> level was at a 57. I hadn't eaten anything all day and by the time they had released me I had taken a couple of sips of my daughters sprite and it went up to 98. So the said I was fine. Since then I have been very worried about this so I decided to get myself a meter so that I could test myself.
I am not able to go more than 1 1/2 hours without <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>eating</span> or my <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugaran>s go down. I have had an MRI on my abdomen, which was OK my pancreas was unremarkable. My doctor does not seem to know what is going on (just says that I am on my way to be a full fledge diabetic in the next couple of years) and that I will have these attacks and will have to learn to live with them. I am desperate to see if anyone can give me more information about what might be going on with my an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bloodan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugaran> levels.
I did some searching last night for info about <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> levels and treatment but did not turn up anything pertinent. Who knows?! I keep telling myself that somehow it is a good thing and it must mean the tx is working :) lol I guess that is one way to make it through the days!
I failed my 1 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hour</span> <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> test. My number was 158 and I even fasted for it. I now have to go Monday morning for the 3 hour test. I know I have to fast again. I do not want to get any false negatives so I am not looking to stay clear of all the "bad" foods but I am trying to watch and cut back on what I eat, which I thought was not bad. Asa nyone else failed their tests and how are you handling the food change?
Hello, a reading of 113 4 hours after lunch is still too high. By that long <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>eating</span> levels should be back to fasting levels and 140. YOur target should be < 120 (and ideally < 100). Let us know.
I recently bought a glucose meter, I have a 14d waking average of 97 and a 30d waking average 95. One <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hour</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>eating</span> my reading will be 140-160, and 2 hours <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>eating</span> it will be 100-120, and 3 hours later it will usually be under 100. So is this diabetic? I ask because I mentioned to someone that both my middle toes had felt like someone was twisting them, and that they were less sensitive on the bottom now, and someone suggested diabetic neuropathy.

Many of us control our diabetes by restricting our carbs so that one <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hour</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>eating</span> our BG does not go over 140. You could be a LADA diabetic (Late Onset type 1) they often have wildly fluctuating BG as the Beta cells (they make the insulin) get killed off) There is an antibody test for that too. GAD test Diabetes is not the end it is controllable, the horror stories you hear are from NOT controlling your BG.
I think after giving humalog, body goes in emergency, and some times increases an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bloodan> pressure and it in turn increases <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>>. Probably I should take humalog <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>eating</span>. b. <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> pressure increases as <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugaran> goes to normal, Even some times, after pushing insulin ,pressure goes high Before going to bed I take an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bloodan> pressure medication, push levemir Yestarday evening an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugaran> came down to 7, I was glad, at 5 am I ate, reduced humalog to 11 in place of 13, but after 2 hours, it was 10.
That little test he does apparently keeps showing an average <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> of 130 when I know that to be untrue. I have a glucometer and check my <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> regularly throughout the day. I've even shown him my meter's log and he still won't believe me about my spikes and crashes. He believes I'm just overly worried and that it's all in my head. What do I do?
a couple of posts below FLGUY asked for more to talk about <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> issues...i have not had any tx yet..i do feel like sh-- alot of the time...maybe 50 to 65 percent of the time...the pains are no big deal its the light head feeling and not knowing if i'm going to pass out or not is what really gets to me...i'm starting to think my hep c virus has screewed up other i was feeling bad...then at 4 pm i ate a grape fruit and felt much better...
His regular pediatricians have gotten <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> work for glucose levels and whatnot, and everything seems to come out fine. Do these episodes sound like an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bloodan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugaran> "crashes" in your opinion? Also, I have always been curious if these episodes (but on a lesser level throughout the day) have anything to do with what might look like ADHD? Could it all be related somehow? BTW, he is not on any medication. He does take omega-3 and evening primrose (omega-6).
What is your an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bloodan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugaran> and did you test it before <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>eating</span> anything in the morning or did you test it soon <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>eating</span> (like 1 or 2 or 3 hours after eating)?
One tablet of Metformin 500mg extended release <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> levels: Average fasting an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugaran> level in the morning : 125 mg/dl (varies from 120 to 129) Average an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugaran> level after two hours of breakfast (after taking Metformin): 120mg/dl Average an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugaran> level after two hours of lunch : 150 mg/dl Problem: 1) There is weight loss of about 6 Kgs in the past 2 years. My weight of 56 Kgs became 50 kgs now.
IMHO everyone who is at risk should buy a an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bloodan> <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> meter and test <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> a good carb laden meal. Do it one <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hour</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> and then again two hours <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span>. If your an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugaran> at one hour is over 140 and at two hours over 120, you do have a problem that needs to be dealt with. Also, on the A1c test, which tells you what your average an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bloodan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugaran> has been for the past three months, you should not have a number higher than 6. The docs will tell you that up to 6.5 or so is normal; it is NOT!! 6.
I wouldn't be to worried about those <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> levels....those are close to perfect....i wouldn't start worrying until it at least got into the 200's....thats high enough to look into diabetes and see if u possibly have it....any good doctor would know that those r good an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bloodan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugaran> levels....good luck!
Usually 1 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hour</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>eating</span> <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugaran>s rarely exceed 140 mg/dl, and return to normal levels within 2-3 hours. If your test results during these time periods fall between 100 and 125 mg/dl you are considered prediabetic. Above 126 mg/dl is considered diabetes. As you can see having levels of "always 115 to 147" is not normal. Testing anytime is not a good idea as it fails to provide an accurate insight on your an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bloodan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugaran> levels.
Result of 3 hour glucose... My fasting was 67, 1 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hour</span> - 160, 2 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hour</span> - 163, 3 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hour</span> - 120. The 2 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hour</span> was a bit over the high max but the rest fell within the range. No GD for me!!! I am still cutting out some carbs and the extra an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugaran>y stuff. Feeling good but not sleeping well...
85 90 90 106 116 85 Not in any particular order - these are it over a few weeks normally taken in the morning or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> a 1--12 hr fast. More interesting in knowing about the results <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> 1 1/2 hours of eating ...
Thought I was doing pretty well -- my highest 1 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hour</span> post prandial reading had been 140 -- until this afternoon. One <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hour</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>eating</span> a tray of takeout sushi from the grocery store I got a reading of 236, immediately followed by a reading of 244 (to make sure it wasn't a machine error). Two hours, some aloe vera juice and a bit of exercise later, it was back down to 88. What does this indicate and how serious is it?
For example, you said that after taking your morning insulin and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>eating</span> breakfast that your <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> level fell. That tells me that your morning dose of insulin is either too high or perhaps you're eating a very light breakfast. If you already eat a substancial breakfast and your an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bloodan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugaran> is falling afterwards, the insulin dose is probably too high and you definitely need to tell your doctor these patterns.
all fruit, juices and tomatoes, green and colored peppers, it will spike your <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> pressure starting about a half <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hour</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>eating</span> and lasting for 4 to 5 hours. Here are some links that I found to be most helpful., and Hope this helps. I'm finding that these conditions usually involve more than one physical problem. All involve stress and food.
What would cause my husband's <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> levels to always be high? We discovered he was diabetic 2 1/2 years ago when he had a very, very severe pancreatic attack. Taken by ambulance to the hospital and stayed in ER for about 8 hours. When we returned home, it was only 20 minutes before we were in the car rushing to the hospital again. This time they kept him for 2 weeks. Ok, thats the history. Now I would like to know about these high numbers.
Results, Triglycerides=2000, Cholesterol=640, THS=300 (yes this correct). Two weeks <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> work doctor's still had no respons with results so after being very persistant they tell him they had to run a Free T4 because they were so shocked with the results and didn't believe they were accurate. Free T4= .11. Doctor's sent him home with thyroid meds and said come back in 3 months for follow up. Is it just me, or are these numbers deadly? especially after 2 years.
