Normal blood sugar levels two hours after eating

Common Questions and Answers about Normal blood sugar levels two hours after eating

blood-sugar

I was wondering about the reactive hypoglycemia and if that's what it could be. This lower blood sugar after eating didn't start until my blood sugars 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 really have no idea if there can be a connection but if you want to check glucose levels you should do fasting and two hours after a meal. Normal fasting should be under a 100 (diabetic is over 126). Normal postprandial would be under 120. Just an off the cuff question about your arrythmia after meals. Do you also have symptoms of acid reflux?
It was 402. In May it had still been at normal levels. It took me a little over two months of strict eating to bring it back down to normal levels. Luckily I haven't had to go on meds for it (yet). After I started tx I haven't been eating as strict as I should. My first A1C was very good. But I'm due for another this Fri and I'm a little scared it's going to be higher. My liver dr said to keep a close eye on it cause the TX can cause sugar levels to raise.
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.
Hello, Blood sugar of 115 could be "somewhat normal", depending on when you measured it. Blood sugar of 147 is not normal regardless of when you measured it. Truely normal fasting is in the low 80s, however most doctors will allow up to about 99, 100 - 126 is prediabetic, and >126 is overt diabetes. 2 hours after eating target should be close to fasting if your blood sugar is normal, but always < 120, though some will allow < 140.
On the fatigue and thirst, some other things to check? 1. Check A1C. This gives an average blood sugar over the past 3 months. If this is normal your problem is not likely to be diabetes. 2. Have a urinalysis. Check there's no chronic Urinary tract infection. You could also get kidney function tested (this is creatinine, and BUN). 3. Get your thyroid checked. At least TSH and FT4 (FT3 as well if it's available). What country are you in?
MY BLOOD SUGARS HAVE BEEN BETWEEN 58-78 UP TO TWO HOURS AFTER EATING A MEAL,,,,AND EVEN AFTER SWEETS,,,,,IS THIS A SIDE EFFECT OF THE HRT (VIVELLE DOT),,OR SOMETHING I NEED TO QUESTION MY FAMILY PHYSICIAN ABOUT? I'VE BEEN DIAGNOSED BEFORE WITH LOW BLOOD SUGAR,,,BUT HAD SPOTS IN MY VISION AND LIGHTHEADED,,,I'M NOT HAVING ANY OF THOSE PROBLEMS NOW,,JUST LOW READINGS. I'M NOT OVERWEIGHT,,,EAT NORMAL AND WATCH MY SUGAR INTAKE.
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.
Lab in doc office (endo clinic) takes fasting blood sugar blood draw, then you drink a sugar loaded drink provided, wait two hours, then they take blood again to compare if your cells absorb sugar or if it floats around in the blood in high levels. If you dont put sweets in your house, then you cant really eat them. Time to cut back while your still young.
even though I eat a normal portion of meal, my blood sugar goes up after each meal. but it goes down to normal level after 4-5 hours. it makes me confused because I cant inject more because I will get low, what should I do?
I am a type two diabetic. I check the blood glucose levels of my four year old son with my meter often. The levels have always been good. 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 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.
If you want to eat oranges, eat one and then test two hours later and make sure your blood sugar is under 140. If not, then you either can't eat oranges or you might have to eat 1/2 an orange. As for waking in the middle of the night to urinate, this can be caused by high blood sugars. Again, test to see where your blood sugars are at. Good for you on making some great changes in your lifestyle; it really makes a difference!
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).
In a person with diabetes, blood glucose levels rise higher than normal and do not fall as quickly. A normal blood glucose reading two hours after drinking the solution is less than 140 mg/dl, and all readings between zero to two hours are less than 200 mg/dl." Hope this helps. Good luck and take care.
HI, I was following your discussion with waverider, who has given you very good advice.
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.
I have been hearing conflicting things about what is normal. What is a normal blood sugar reading for a non diabetic and NOT fasting? (My Dr. said that I have pre-diabetes) A few hours after eating my ranges are from 140-150. I have heard that anything over 100 is bad, but another place said that anything over 200 in the middle of the day is bad. Which is it?
After thinking about it a bit I realized I hadn't eaten in about 17 hours so I cooked some pizza and drank some gatorade. This only made me feel like 10% better. Maybe it is just taking a while to raise sugar levels or is it anxiety? People fast longer than 24 hours sometimes and feel fine! Side note: I am 32. I do not drink or smoke and have been off all medications for over a month now.

IMHO everyone who is at risk should buy a blood sugar meter and test after a good carb laden meal. Do it one hour after and then again two hours after. If your sugar 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 blood sugar 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.
Are they taking fasting blood sugar? You need to fast between 12 and 14 hours. Nothing but water.
After that, I have a packet of bean curd puff and some dry longan (dry fruit). After 3 hours, I went to bed. This morning I take my blood sugar again before breakfast (fasting). It is 6.2. I'm curious, is 2.5mg of minidiab really can lower the blood sugar that much? Or my meter something wrong......? Again after 2 cups of coffee, I felt very very dizzy. I take my blood pressure, it is 112/85. My chest is very tight, it looks like an elephant sitting on it.
A malfunctioning thyroid can disrupt blood sugar levels too. Eating a proper diabetic nutrition, maintaining normal body weight and performing daily 30-60 minutes of exercise helps to control blood sugar levels. If you're currently taking medication/drugs be sure to check with your local pharmacist to see if any elevate blood sugars.
Most of us wait around 2 hours after a meal before testing. For a diabetic, 145 would be OK after 1 1/2 hours. It would be interesting to know what yours was after 2 hours. it may just take your body a little longer to process the sugar. However, your fasting blood sugars look good to me. I understand that with your family history, you might naturally be a little anxious about getting diabetes.
For the past several years I have noticed that after eating food (which ranges from just a cup of milk to a full meal) that my heart rate and blood pressure increases significantly about 30 minutes after eating, and it lasts for about one and 1/2 hours to two hours. This occurs about 50% of the time after eating. My heart rate goes from ~75 bpm up to 140 bmp (max todate), and the blood pressure goes from 130/80 up to 180/102 (max to date).
Lantus is a basal insulin and needed for background, but if your husband is high (which it sounds like he is) two hours after eating, he also needs bolus shots, to cover his food. A basal/bolus regimen is standard. As for Type, I was misdiagnosed as Type 2 at age 58. I'm LADA which for all intents and purposes is Type 1. It is not only for children. I'm not saying that is your husband's case. He definitely needs to see that endo ASAP and get on a treatment that will work.
You could be oozing with total testosterone and still be deficient if you also have high levels of binding globulin. Normal levels of bioavailable testosterone are 2.00 to 8.60 nmol/L. That's it. Everything else is irrelevant.
