Blood glucose after eating two hours

Common Questions and Answers about Blood glucose after eating two hours


Avatar m tn 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 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 f tn Two and a half months ago I went to my dr for a routine check up and she did a CBC and also checked my blood sugar. My fasting sugar was 103 the first time and 110 the second visit. My hbA1c was 5.8 She said I have "pre-diabetes" and sent me to a nutrionist. The nutritonist gave me a glucose meter so I could check my bs after meals and fasting. After two months of excercise and diet change I have lost 15lbs.
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 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 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 on a Saturday. I had eaten breakfast only about an hour before, maybe up to two hours. My blood glucose was 61. I guess I have two questions. The first is whether I should get tested for anything like adrenal deficiencies or something else? The second pertains to diet. The advice I've gotten from those close to me is to eat protein, try to limit carbs, definitely keep sugar intake as low as possible.
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?
490398 tn?1319940717 A blood sugar of 239 two hours after eating is too high. It should be no higher than 180.
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 I just took my blood sugar and it was 96 after I had a cup of coffee with milk and sugar. I am about to eat oatmeal with no sugar.
194838 tn?1303428544 Before eating lunch and two hours after eating lunch. Before supper and two hours after eating supper. And at bedtime. Experiment a bit and fast during the morning. Take your blood sugar and eat a single apple or 190 calories of yogurt. Take your blood sugar an hour after and an hour after that. Make note of the drop. Do the same and exercise for a half hour. Then check your sugar. Perform these tests without medication for a day and then with medication.
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 f tn Though a rare disorder, pancreatic insulinomas should also be thought of in your case and have someone check your blood sugar just after eating which will show hypoglycemia. Dizziness after eating can also be due to TMJ. Many patients with TMJ have dizziness. There are two possible causes. One is that when TMJ is inflamed inner ear is affected causing dizziness. The second possible cause is inflammation of the sternocleidomastoid muscle (SCM) involved in TMJ and chewing.
452066 tn?1400626877 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?
Avatar m tn 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. I am worring that i already got diabeties. and started diabetic diet.
Avatar m tn is it normal to have a blood sugar reading of 133 4 hours after eating.
Avatar f tn would be *before* you ate anything... preferably 6 to 8 HOURS BEFORE you ate anything, and then TWO HOURS AFTER you ate. 5-10 minutes after eating whole-milk (regular) yogurt [I eat yogurt, I read nutritional lables, if it had 17 grams of sugar, and IF you had what the nutritional label stated as ONE SERVING which on a yogurt label is usually 4 ounces, then it was 'regular' plain yogurt] you STILL can't tell anything about your actual diabetes status. My best guess...
Avatar f tn He prescribed metformin 500mg (which I have been taking for a year). This week my sugar has been around 72 two hours after eating. And I havenĀ“t felt well. The weird thing is that my glucose numbers are very low, and I still urinate very frequently...why is this???? Why are my glucose numbers so low after eating?. I thought it could be that the dosage of my medicine was too high, so I tried going one day reducing the dosage, but the urination got worse.
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 f tn Im a t2 diabetic n that is high even after eating it should be 130 or less 1hour after eating and in fasting it should be 90 or less i would call doctor n tell how high ur sugars are cuase that can harm baby
Avatar n tn I am Insulin Resistant. I recently ordered a free blood glucose meter after feeling severe hypoglycemic effects after eating fruit lately. I ate a candy bar, then checked my sugars two hours later. It read 168. Is it possible that I have crossed into the diabetic zone?
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 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 m tn In the fast test you are instructed not to eat for a certain number of hours, your blood glucose level is measured, you drink a specific amount of glucose, and then, for a number of hours at specific intervals your glucose levels are measured. You should be a "little nervous" and making an appointment for such an evaluation should be a priority. The blood sugar levels does not fall because "you have not been eating properly".
Avatar n tn I test when I wake up in the AM and a few hours after eating dinner.
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.
