Blood glucose 2 hours after eating

Common Questions and Answers about Blood glucose 2 hours after eating


Avatar n tn I had eaten half a hamburger and a few fries 2 hours prior to the blood test, and I'm wondering how much of an effect this food would have had on my glucose levels. I'm getting a fasting glucose test tomorrow, but I'm kind of stressed out that I might have diabetes or pre-diabetes. Do you have any ideas of just how abnormal my glucose level is? Thanks...
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 f tn In going for my glucose test tomorrow and I was wondering if it was OK to eat before the test or not. I have heard it was ok but I have also heard that you shouldn't because it will mess the test up. What should I do?
Avatar n tn Hi, Your diabetes educator may recommend different levels as target depending on your treatment goals. Just so you know, people without diabetes do not have blood sugars higher than 140 2 hours after eating and most will be considerably lower (< 120, or evening in the range of 80 - 100). If you eat lower carb / avoid sugars, you may find you can also achieve lower post eating numbers. It will be best to have numbers as close to non-diabetic as you can safely achieve.
Avatar m tn Hi Angel, target levels for pregnancy or trying to get pregnant are:- Fasting: 70 - 95 Before eating: 70 - 95 1 hour after eating: < 140 2 hours after eating: < 120 I think you are going to need to be adding in insulin to get your levels down. Some eating advice: you need to severely restrict your carbs for now (1 whole wheat bun is too much). Don't eat low fat foods. The fat is very important to help slow down the digestion of carbohydrates.
Avatar f tn Do you check it any time (even a few minutes after eating)? I have heard that you need to check it at least two hours after eating (which is what I do). I usually get between high 7's and 10.
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 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.
Avatar m tn Anyone else have trouble eating often enough? I need to eat every 3-4 hours or my body starts burning muscle. Is this typical of anyone else? Makes sleeping a little tough. I usually wake up with hunger pains, but if I happen to sleep longer I can be wrecked in a few hours. I am naturally a lean person.
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 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.
490398 tn?1319944317 A blood sugar of 239 two hours after eating is too high. It should be no higher than 180.
107693 tn?1252868043 FBS of 130 would already make him diabetic. Does he get high blood sugars after eating? Time to test is 2 hours after the start of a meal. Truly normal numbers are likely around 100, but medical profession say that < 120 is considered normal. A1C of 6.2 is already close to diabetic. THey say 6.3 is the cutoff for diabetes. However, optimal A1C should be < 5.0. For me I find I can reduce the dawn effect, by limiting how many carbs I eat.
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 n tn This morning at 8 am I was 112, two hours later without eating I was up to 147, two hours after lunch and med it was 165. I have also found that I am experiencing stomach discomfort with resulting trips to the bathroom. At the visit 2 months ago blood showed that I had slightly lowered thyroid which will be retested at upcoming test. In an effort to control this without meds I have eliminated soy, corn, broccoli, and spinach from my diet.
Avatar m tn 92 md/dL (ranges 65-110) insulin after 20 min: 45.8 (ranges 3.0-35.0 mcU/ml) glucose after 120 min: 65 md/dL (ranges 65-110) insulin after 120 min: 8.85 (ranges 3.0-35.0 mcU/ml) I would really appreciate if you could give me your opinion.
Avatar m tn I suggest that for now you monitor your fasting levels from time to time (daily is not necessary), to see how they go over time. Check post eating numbers at 1 - 2 hours occasionally after carby meals to catch if anything is changing. If your fasting levels are consistently over 100, it may be time to bring to the attention of your dr.
Avatar m tn is it normal to have a blood sugar reading of 133 4 hours after eating.
Avatar n tn My blood glucose was 95 after an overnight fast. I ate a bowl of Fiber One cereal for breakfast, and 70 minutes afterward my glucose was up to 146. Then three hours later it was 118. Is this prediabetic?
Avatar n tn Here's my take. Don't get caught up in ranges. Go by what your doctor says and what your lab states is YOUR range. A safe normal postprandial (2-4 hours) has been considered <180 mg/dl. Eating the proper foods, the obtainable goal has been <140 mg/dl. These are goals for diabetics and non-diabetics. However, these goals may not be correct for medicinal induced diabetics; one that has diabetes as a side effect of medication.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn My doctor wants me to wake up with 95 and nothing over 120 two hours after I eat. I have been making my morning number but after meals I sometimes fall short. NO ONE IS PERFECT. Just try your best.
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 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).
Avatar m tn "What would cause my feet to hurt after eating?" How soon after eating do you feel the pain? What are your postprandial levels? If I amp up over 175 mg/dl postprandial I get airplane feet [prickly/tingling], a warning sign from my body. "My diabetes is under control and my blood sugar numbers and A1C are perfect (5.9)." An A1c of 5.9% equates to a daily glucose average of 123 mg/dl, not 'perfect'. Perfect would be between 4-5%. Have you seen a Neurologist?
Avatar n tn No where in any of that were you mentioned, or even considered...As a matter of fact it was posted 2 hours after I had messaged you regarding your pictures of moose in the northland, and you were going to send me some, so I thought we were getting along well..Then I go make supper, come back and BAM! I get anhilated with a thread from you about how could I set you up like that!!! I was honestly scratching my head thinking what the heck is that all about...
4989104 tn?1365652562 under 100 before eating and under 140 a couple of hours after eating. Better safe than sorry, I suppose.
Avatar f tn You'll want to go in the morning because you can't eat or drink anything 2 hours prior to them taking your blood. When you go in they will have you drink this orange drink that's basically like flat orange soda then you'll have to wait one hour before they will draw your blood. I would suggest not eating a lot of sugary stuff that day before you go in because it might effect your test results!
