Blood glucose 2 hours after meal

Common Questions and Answers about Blood glucose 2 hours after meal


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 m tn re getting hung up on the fact that 2-3 hours AFTER one meal may be BEFORE the next meal. Only concentrate on one meal at a time. How often are you checking your blood sugar at home? Be sure to closely follow the instructions of your doc, don't just choose your own times. Also, be sure to keep a journal of your results. Most glucose meters come with a log book. If you don't have one, ask your doc, or, you can print one from the internet.
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 n tn So it makes more sense to me to measure the blood glucose level two hours after the meal has finished, especially when some meals consist of multiple courses, and the entire meal can last up to an hour. Your thoughts on this? Also, I am interested in knowing what a "normal" blood glucose level is directly after a meal, if it is supposed to lower to under 180 (or 140 according to other sites) within two hours after the completion of a meal.
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?
1534216 tn?1296165295 Test before meal, then 2 1/2 hours after. This will tell you how the foods you consumed affected your glucose level. An A1c of 8.4% is very high. It is equivalent to your glucose being 222 mg/dl daily. You want the A1c below 5.4%. Unless you are a physical athlete or a body building weight lifter, a person standing 6' 4" average weight is 181-207 lbs, 82-94 kg. You?
Avatar n tn Actually, articles I have read listing so-called "normal" ranges of glucose values after a meal tend to say that a reading above the mid 140's is considered possibly diabetic. However, the ranges do differ from person to person. Most people's glucose can go as high as in the mid 140's after a meal before their own bodies start producing extra insulin to bring those levels down. The range of 70-126 is considered normal before eating a meal, or as a fasting glucose level.
Avatar n tn In general, if your blood sugar level is below 100 mg / dL after fasting for at least 8 to 10 hours, then your blood sugar is normal. Blood sugar levels are usually lowest before each meal.
Avatar n tn My little brother who is 15 turning 16 in november , and who is overweight (290 lbs), the doctor said with his height (5'11) he should be 210. He tested his blood glucose once with my dad's glucose testing kit (Dad's a diabetic) after fasting for 8 hours and staying up all night until 7am, his glucose came out at 6.1 mmol on one finger and 6.4 mmol on another finger...Isn't that in the range of having pre-diabetes?
Avatar f tn 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?
Avatar n tn Have you measured your blood sugar before a meal and then after the meal (usually measure at 1 1/2 - 2 hours after a meal). if your sugar is going high or low after eating this can affect how you feel.
Avatar n tn Random readings are always in the low to mid 80s, post prandial responses are excellent peaking at ~125 at 1.5 hours post meal and back in the low to mid 80s at 2 hours post prandial pretty much regardless of the carb load I've eaten. Curiously though my very first thing in the morning "fasting" tests are always high 90-105. I've been testing regularly over the past year+ and this scenario is pretty consistent. My question is....
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.
1096641 tn?1271707225 "Anything above 126 mg/dl is Type 2 Diabetes." I'm fasting numbers are in the 90' "2 hours after meal" numbers are a bit high (121-147)... during the glucose tolerance test my fasting numbers were 105, 1hr after 75g it was 239 (or 269) and 2 hrs later was 160something.
Avatar f tn I have gestational diabetes and I check 4 times a day. The first time I test is when I first wake up, before eating anything. That's supposed to be between 65 and 95. The rest of the day I test 2 hours after each meal and I was told it should just stay under 120. Hope that helps. And I hope they don't have you on the diet because that blows.
Avatar m tn No it is not. An 134 mg/dl test result fours after eating is considered diabetes. Postprandial [2-3 hours after meal] should be <141 mg/dl, optimum <121 mg/dl. Having desert implies eating something sugary. Sorry, but it sounds like you're playing Russian roulette with your diabetes?
Avatar f tn An glucose level of 244 mg/dl is unhealthy, especially if you saw this first thing in morning b4 breakfast or 2-3 hours after a meal. Your 5 yo needs to be seen by a doctor ASAP. Also, glucose is still on the rise from the foods you ate 1 hour after a meal. Testing at this time provides inaccurate results, thus the 2-3 hour wait period when glucose has plateaued in the body.
Avatar n tn So if you do a glucose test 2 hours after a meal it is normal to see a higher number. Most doctors like to see this number at under 140. However, a number from 140-199 after a meal is seen as pre-diabetes, and means the person probably needs to look at what they are eating and perhaps their weight and exercise to take control of these areas that do affect type 2 diabetes. A number of 200 or more is usually seen as the number that locks in a diabetes diagnosis.
