Blood glucose after a meal one hour

Common Questions and Answers about Blood glucose after a meal one hour


Avatar m tn Two hours after eating breakfast my glucose levels were 161. 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 n tn I know it varies from person to person depending on actual diet and other factors, but just a general range to indicate how many blood glucose points a doctor expects to be reduced every hour after a meal. This is what I simply can't find anywhere.
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?
452066 tn?1400626877 Definitely sounds like it bears watching. To keep records for the doctors do the testing 2 hours after the eating instead of one. Don't go crazy and check each meal, but every day do a different meal so you have a good sample. Any number after 140 can cause complications down the road if it is occuring a lot, but it is good that it comes down by the second hour.
Avatar f tn I tested my blood glucose today after a 7 hour fast and my reading was 155, then not a minute later it was 161, about 3-4 minutes later i was curious and tested it again, it was 168. Could stress have made it go up that many points within five minutes? Also am I prediabetic and what do i do to bring my numbers back down to normal?
Avatar f tn Thanks for your response! I fasted for 11 hours because my eyes refused to stay open past 9:30 pm. I'm here at the lab and just finished my 3rd blood draw. The first hour after the first blood draw and glucose drink was the WORST! Thankfully I didn't throw up but I almost did. They let me drink some water which helped. I'm praying that my tests come back ok and I don't have gestational diabetes. Good luck to you!
194838 tn?1303428544 You might want to test your fasting blood sugar first thing before any food which should be under 100. Then try two hours after a meal, do a different meal each day. Those numbers should be under 140. This is very useful to tell you which foods you can eat which allow you to be in target range and which spike your blood sugar too high.
Avatar f tn If this is 2-3 hours after a meal, this is normal blood glucose ranges for a diabetic. It is hard to say one way or the other until we hear back from you.
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 n tn dont do the 3 hour GTT for diabetics but the 4-hour GTT for reactive hypoglycemia. Your blood is taken after a 12-hour fast. Then you are given a glucose challenge (a sugary drink), and your blood is taken at one hours intervals for for 4 hours. The test itself is really a pain but I am happy I did it. It turns out my blood sugar drops extremely low after meals and this is accompanied by heart palpitations.
Avatar f tn I started checking it at one hour after eating and one time it was 139 then at the two hour mark it was 71. That was after having a grilled hamburger and 1/2 cup of mashed potatoes for dinner. I thought my blood sugar was getting under control and now it's running low. Can anyone tell me why this might be happening?
Avatar m tn Postprandial is defined as 2-3 hours after/post a meal, when glucose plateaus in the bloodstream. Thus, it serves as a test of whether a person may have diabetes, or of whether a person who has diabetes is successfully controlling their glucose levels. At 1 hour glucose is still on the rise not providing an accurate assessment. Another example is an OGTT for diabetes screening, the most important sample is the 2 hour sample.
Avatar n tn Now my baby is one year old. Today I ate about 50 grams of carbs (white flour) and I tested one hour after meal, it was 139, however, two hours it went up to 149. I am just stunned. Why my two hour number is higher one hour number? Thanks very much.
Avatar m tn I looked at your Diabetes Tracker Stats, saw your UK input in mmol/l instead of mg/dl (USA). Your daily average level of 10 mmo/l is dangerously high and maximum of 14 mmol/l is suicidal. Sadly to say your blood glucose levels are out of control. Testing once a day, in your case, will not provide you with adequate data to learn what is causing your blood glucose to elevate.
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 f tn I quickly gained about 30 pounds and the episodes continued. One evening, after a particularly carb heavy meal, I felt the same symptoms and checked my blood sugar on a home meter. It was 72. Juice brought it up and I felt better. I continued to experience this and my blood sugar was always in the 70's when I felt this way. Food/juice corrected the feelings. I saw an endocrinologist who ran every test known to man.
Avatar f tn I did my yesterday ..
Avatar f tn Why my pp sugar is less than fasting. I experience weakness and feel hungry just after an hour after having meal. I also tested my son for the same n results are glucose fasting:90 glucose pp:85..why is my son sugar pp levels r also less just like me though is not genetically my son. I again tested my son insulin fasting which is 12 and insulin pp which is 18 . This result is more than the range. What does it signify.We both hv stopped hving sugar n are on low carb diet and low fat diet.
Avatar m tn Similar to what you mentioned in your post, folks in this arena experience normal or slightly higher than normal blood glucose readings upon awakening, or before a meal, then lower blood glucose AFTER a meal [postprandial]. Educate yourself on LADA then discuss treatment methods with an Endocrinologist. Keep in mind not all doctors are educated on LADA. You may have to see several until you find one that is. Oral medication and basal injections may be prescribed.
