Common Questions and Answers about Blood sugar levels 3 hours after eating

blood-sugar

i have maintained healthy levels until the last few weeks and find my testing is showing higher than normal levels 3 hours after eating...also waking up with elevated levels in the morning(fasting)...just curious if the tx is exaserbating this or if i am slowing sinking into the type 2 which almost makes no sense as I am now eating for once in my life healthy and appropriately....
I suggest you get referred to an Endocrinologist - a doctor trained in diabetes care and treatment - for further testing. High levels after a meal then diving to lows 3-4 hours later could possibly be reactive hypoglycemia. Only a thorough medical evaluation and testing can reveal the real cause.
I did some searching last night for info about blood sugar 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 believe that some doctors consider a blood sugar higher than about 150 after a meal as diabetic. So your son's sugar levels in the 200's do warrant some tests. We wish you the best.
Testing times should be fasting and then 2 hours after eating. By doing this you will also learn which foods make your blood sugars high (and you can then avoid them). if your blood sugars stay high even with lifestyle measures then medications (oral such as metformin, or injected insulin if your sugars were very high) would be recommended. Please read up on diabetes and it's management.
My question is about never having low blood sugar times (I probably never go under 100) yet I can have a spike in blood sugar five hours after eating, without going under 100. I have morning highs most of the time as well. Yesterday I ate ate 7 gms of carbs at lunch at 3:30, tested 112 at 4:15, 112 at 4:58, 125 at 6:07 (no exercise), had 7 gms of carbs at dinner at 7:20 pm, tested 129 at 8:22, 130 at 9:54, and 147 at 12:30 am.
I recently bought a glucose meter, I have a 14d waking average of 97 and a 30d waking average 95. One hour after eating my reading will be 140-160, and 2 hours after eating 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.

* 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.
• Eat several small meals and snacks throughout the day, no more than three hours apart. • Eat a well-balanced diet including lean and nonmeat sources of protein and high-fiber foods including whole grains, fruit and vegetables. • Avoid or limit sugary foods, especially on an empty stomach. Of course, further evaluation by a doctor is warranted.
They say you should eat small meals every 3 hours or so, and not eating is not good for you either. Watch your carbs.
109 is not too high 3 hours after eating or even after fasting Good luck
I've been having troubles lately before I knew my blood sugar was high, after I would eat I would feel very bad, not knowing I had high blood sugar I was leading a normal diet, even some fast food here and there, I'm sure my blood sugar has been very very high until I started dieting now. Are those numbers normal or should I be worried?
Even after eating a very sweet meal / meal with lots of carbs truly normal blood sugar should not go above 120. Truly normal A1C (a measure of 3 month average blood sugars (blood test)) is 4.1 - 4.6. Children can normally have lower blood sugars than adults, but would not want to see any numbers less than 65 - 70.
When he had a seizure Friday I called 911 and the paramedics checked his blood sugar and it was 218 and they thought he might be diabetic. 8 hours later we took him to the health department and they checked his sugar (by drawing blood from his arm) and it was 112 and they said he wasn't diabetic and that the finger ***** test wasn't very accurate. They thought that the seizure caused his sugar to go up. The last time he had ate anything was 12 hours before the seizure.
The other night however he ate a lot of his Halloween candy and I check his sugar a couple of hours after he had eaten it and his BG level was 159. This really worried me because his sugar levels had never been this high. I checked again in thirty minutes and it was 133. I checked it again in two hours and it was 106. I checked it the next morning and it was 95.
Normal levels - 60/70 to 99 mg/dl 3. Postprandial - Test 2-3 hours after eating. This is when sugars from foods you ate have plateaued in your body. Waiting longer as you did, glucose is on the decline and you end up with a false/positive inaccurate reading. Normal levels - <99 mg/dl Diabetes - Aim for <141 mg/dl, optimum <121 mg/dl. Above 141 mg/dl is not good. Web sites proclaiming it's OK to be as high as181 mg/dl are sponsored by drug companies who want your levels high.
I think after giving humalog, body goes in emergency, and some times increases blood pressure and it in turn increases blood sugar. Probably I should take humalog after eating. b. Blood pressure increases as blood sugar goes to normal, Even some times, after pushing insulin ,pressure goes high Before going to bed I take blood pressure medication, push levemir Yestarday evening sugar 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 blood sugar of 130 when I know that to be untrue. I have a glucometer and check my sugar 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?
His regular pediatricians have gotten blood work for glucose levels and whatnot, and everything seems to come out fine. Do these episodes sound like blood sugar "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).
Therapeutic Juice Drinks (Juice therapy is not recommended in place of medical treatment, but as a complement to treatment.
Have you tested your fasting blood sugar levels? Those are when you first get up in the morning, before you eat/drink anything. Normal levels are below 100. Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) often leads to type II diabetes. I had hypoglycemia for years and now have "pre" diabetes.
Stomach ulcers cause pain on eating and duodenal ulcers cause pain on fasting (2-3 hrs after eating). Peptic ulcers are eroded areas in the lining of the digestive tract usually in the stomach and duodenum. The two common causes for this are: infection with helicobacter pylori and use of nonsteroidal anti inflammatory medications (NSAID). Avoid NSAIDs, quit smoking, eliminate alcohol and reduce stress levels. OTC antacids and antibiotics to treat H pylori further aid in therapy.
I am having a similar problem as you are with feeling rage for several hours after eating something that has sugar in it. The rage can be delayed for anywhere from 4 to 12 hours after eating the sugary food. I have only had this problem since I stopped eating dairy and eggs and soy (I used to be a vegetarian) and started eating small portions of lean meats (turkey, chicken, salmon, shrimp).
one weak back I have taken rbs test after two hours of taking breakfast my sugar level was 142gm please tell me whether I have diabetes or not
What is your blood sugar and did you test it before eating anything in the morning or did you test it soon after eating (like 1 or 2 or 3 hours after eating)?
Whatever you are ingesting in the late afternoon and/or evening should be substituted for something light (low carb count and minimal sugar content). Check your blood sugar 2 hrs after your last meal of the day. The reading should not be higher than the A.M. fasting. In conclusion, manage your blood sugar levels before going to bed.
To top that meal off I had a 2 scoop ice cream.An hour after that meal I checked my blood sugar for the next couple of hours and was pretty shocked. Here is my blood sugar readings: 3pm-267 4pm-213 5pm-179 6pm-118 7pm-70 I feel that a very low carb diet is covering up possible type 2 diabetes,feel free to give your opinion it is much appreciated.
And another confusing thing is, is if I don't eat something for at least 3 hours my blood sugar drops to below 70. It ranges between 60-70. And I end up feeling really sick. And I didn't know you can have a problem with high AND low blood sugars. And I hear from people that pre-diabetes is serious and needs attention (not meds) and others say it doesn't mean anything and is no big deal. I don't know if I should be worried or not. And I don't know yet how to change my diet.
