Blood glucose 2 hours after eating

Common Questions and Answers about Blood glucose 2 hours after eating


Avatar m tn Hi. So, the exact number for everyone as to fasting glucose level and what they'd see after 3 hours after eating is unique. There is a 'range' of normal. Normal for fasting glucose level range is around 72 to 99 and up to 140 two hours after eating. You sound within normal to me. Have you been concerned for any reason? Did you recently get this lab work done? Tell us more!
Avatar n tn 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. Testing your blood sugar occasionally is a good way to reassure yourself that your blood sugar is normal. However, testing won't prevent Diabetes.
Avatar m tn Right after a brisk 1 hour walk they were 104. I ate a small sandwich and checked (2) hours after eating. My glucose wat 181. What's up with this. Right now my waking numbers average about 150. Do these seem right?
Avatar f tn What you are experiencing is called reactive hypoglycemia [or alimentary hypoglycemia] which is low glucose that occurs after a meal — usually one to three hours after eating. What also can be happening is a carb crash caused by eating mashed potatoes and buger bun [white bread]. Eating a meal laden with high carbs can cause your pancreas to kick into overdrive to produce insulin to counteract the onset of sugar from the foods you just consumed. That rush of insulin now creates a yo-yo effect.
Avatar m tn fasting, two hours after breakfast, 2 after lunch, 2 after dinner. That way you can get a sampling of where you're at different times of day. Also testing two hours after meals is a good way of seeing how different foods affect your blood glucose and knowing then what is good and not so good for you to eat. So bottom line is there is no absolute time you have to test but it does provide you with important information about managing your diabetes.
Avatar m tn is it normal to have a blood sugar reading of 133 4 hours after eating.
Avatar m tn why did my glucose level continue to rise over 3 hours instead of peak and drop down like most people do? And why would I get more sick after eating than I would having a 100 mg dose of glucose on an empty stomach? My doctor is out of town for another 2 1/2 weeks and the nurse had really no advice for me other than sometimes your body produces a large amount of insulin after you eat which can cause this feeling. So why didn't I get this feeling immediately from the test?
Avatar n tn I had seen a dietician who is a certified diabetic educator and told me that since I have type 2 that my I should not be more than 160 2 hours after my first bite. Is that right?
Avatar n tn First reading is usually lower than the second reading which is around 117. Second reading 2 hours after eating is usually around 130-132. This is after I eat carb laden foods i.e. bread, chips, peanut butter but doesn't include sweets i.e. ice cream or cake. Because those I just don't eat. So am I a diabetic or not?
Avatar m tn Please if your numbers after a full nights sleep are much over 120, and you are still thirsty, and still over 140 I believe after 2 hours( after eating)............get to a walkin in clinic today. You might want to call your insurance co. and get their guidance before you do that TODAY. Don't be scared. The dry mouth was one of the symptoms of possible diabetes. That number is another! My first symptoms when I asked to be tested started similarly.
Avatar f tn These secrete huge amount of insulin in response to food and the person has hypoglycemia or low blood sugar just after eating. Diagnosis is by doing blood sugar levels fating, after food and through glucose challenge test. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Do consult your doctor regarding these possibilities and treatment options discussed. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar n tn U may want to talk to doctor about this and waking up with low blood sugars is normal. Eating every 2 to 4 hours could be a case of you not eating enough at your meals.Orange juice is a good way to get your sugar up if your not hungry its going into your blood stream fast but watch how much you drink drink too much then you may have a high sugar for some time.Carbs do get your sugar up but they also make you gain wight. Try drinking powerade.
Avatar m tn You say you were tested for diabetes? Well, sometimes low blood sugar can cause the sleepiness after eating, have you had a glucose tolerance test performed?
Avatar n tn I test when I wake up in the AM and a few hours after eating dinner.
Avatar f tn The best way to know what works for YOU is to try a certain food and test your blood glucose two hours after eating and make sure you stay within target. If a certain food spikes you up say over 140 you might try a lesser amount of that food or just eliminate it from your diet. It is not really possible to make a list of foods to eat and not eat because we are all different. But a diet of protein and lots of fresh vegies, small amounts of fruit and small amounts of carbs should do best.
Avatar f tn Your husband is fine and quite normal. After eating blood glucose [sugar] plateaus in the bloodstream at 2-3 hours. At 1 hour the body hasn't been given ample time to dispose of the excess glucose. The 2 hour level of 101 mg/dl says he's normal. His mom was incorrect to test at 1 hour.
Avatar m tn You need to check your blood sugar 2 hours after eating. If your numbers are higher than 140, you may be considered prediabetic. Diet (low carb), exercise, weight management will all help normalise / improve your sugars. Totally normal and non-diabetic blood sugars HBa1c should be < 5.0.
Avatar m tn 3 mmol/l , after 1 hour GTT 8.83 mmol/l ,after 2 hours it suddenly dropped to 3.9 mmol/l , after 3 hours it is 4.2 . Early morning after taking 75 mg of glucose i feel little difficult to breath and dizziness for a while.and today evening i tested with home kit .. it is showing 5.6 mmol/l My father and grand father are diabetic. Doctor said it may or may not be diabetice and there could be some other reasons. Could you please tell me whats going wrong with me.
Avatar n tn I understand it can be scary to have a blood glucose reading that appears higher than normal. However a single plasma glucose reading is not enough to diagnose you with diabetes. Diabetes is usually diagnosed based on symptoms of hyperglycemia (blurred vision, frequent urination, headache, fatigue) and a random fasting plasma glucose reading > 200 mg/dL or ≥ 1 of the following: A1c reading ≥ 6.
490398 tn?1319940717 A blood sugar of 239 two hours after eating is too high. It should be no higher than 180.
Avatar n tn I'm 18 and have a problem with nausea after eating. About two years ago I became a vegetarian but have only recently starting having problems. In addition, I am tired all the time, have bad headaches, and when I work out I have shortness of breath. My doctor thought I had exercise induced asthma and prescribed an inhaler, but it doesn't seem to help. And now I am having stomach pains.
Avatar n tn (are there conditions that would cause my blood to be so high??) My blood did drop down under 100 after 2 hours... So i am confused on the whole issue... Any advice or thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Also, at what point do you recommend that I see a doctor? Basically I am worried because from what I understand a person living without diabetes should not have blood glucose levels so high at any time.
Avatar m tn I was diagnosed this January and have been on metformin 500 mg/dL since then. My doctor said that I should test my blood glucose 2 hours after meal, but last night I was curious and tested immediately after meal to see what the number would be. I exercise 1 to 2 hours everyday as well watch my diet carefully. Would you tell me if BG of 196 (right after meal) is acceptable for a diabetic?
Avatar n tn 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?
304573 tn?1345577338 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....
Avatar f tn I had this done 2 weeks ago. Fast for 12 hours before your test. If you need a drink just sip water. That's all. They will take your blood make you drink a glucose drink and then take your blood again 2 hours later. Unfortunately I found out I do have gestational diabetes but so far can control this through my diet.
