Blood glucose levels normal after meals

Common Questions and Answers about Blood glucose levels normal after meals


Avatar n tn In a person with diabetes, blood glucose levels rise higher than normal and do not fall as quickly. A normal blood glucose reading two hours after drinking the solution is less than 140 mg/dl, and all readings between zero to two hours are less than 200 mg/dl." Hope this helps. Good luck and take care.
Avatar m tn Fasting at first thing in the morning? After meals? (How long?). A random blood sugar doesn't mean that much. If it is fasting, then it is in the pre-diabetes category. Normal fasting is considered to be under 100. Pre-diabetes is considered from 100 to 125 and diabetic is considered 126 and over. However one number is just one number and what would be better is to have an A1C done. This gives you an average of blood sugars for a period of about three months.
Avatar m tn After a while, you will know how much insulin or metformin or exercise is required to maintain normal glucose levels. Modern meters have a memory that can recall every test value and the time, and this can be downloaded to your PC. There are many programs with excellent RN's trained as advisors to help you set up a testing schedule. Being involved with such a "helper" is very worthwhile.
Avatar m tn I always take 2 or 3 pulkas or chapathis during night every day and i dont eat rice during night.. But whenever i check the blood glucose levels with the glucometer, i find that the fasting values are not within the range of normal values viz 110 for fasting. but the post lunch levels always within the normal range of viz 140.The random levels always varies from 125 to 150. Kindly advise me whether i am diabetic and do i have to take medicine for diabetes?
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 I have read the fasting and post-meal (+2 hours) glucose levels for individuals with and without diabetes. Some "reputable" diabetes sites recommend that "normal" blood glucose levels are under 180 two hours after a meal, while other sites recommend under 140, suggesting that 180 is too high even after two hours. I've even read various doctors give different recommendations that are between 120 and 180 two hours after a meal.
Avatar f tn Those numbers sound too low. Are you purposely trying to eat no sugars or carbs? Usually that happens if you go from one extreme to the next. You need to get those levels up to a more normal range... have you seen a dietitian? They will give you meal planning tips and show you how to schedule out your meals so your sugars don't get too high or too low.
Avatar f tn In a person without diabetes, the glucose levels in the blood rise following drinking the glucose drink, but then then fall quickly back to normal (because insulin is produced in response to the glucose, and the insulin has a normal effect of lowing blood glucose.
Avatar n tn Hello, IowaMom, from a fellow Iowan! Normal target glucose levels are between 80 and 120. Glucose levels rise in everyone depending on the food you eat, your body starts breaking the food down and absorbs the carbs before insulin is released to cover those carbs. A 144 bloood sugar isn't abnormal for anyone.
Avatar f tn The postprandial provides an insight of which foods are causing blood glucose to rise above normal. Blood glucose reaches its peak from foods eaten between 2 and 3 hours after consumption. Both prandial & postprandial ranges should be discussed with his doctor. Some doctors expect postprandial below <180 mg/dl, others at below <140 mg/dl.
Avatar f tn It is either connected to reflux, or to pancreatic insulinoma which cause a rapid rise and then rapid fall of blood glucose resulting in rapid heart rate. Apart from this it can even be due to anemia, low blood pressure, hypoglycemia, anxiety, hyperthyroidism etc. Please consult your PCP for primary examination (blood sugar, thyroid levels, hemoglobin, BP monitoring etc) followed by proper referral. Take care!
Avatar m tn After my blood sugar has returned to normal levels (101 mg/dL in 3 hours) can I be sure that I shouldn't have any symptoms of hypoglycemia or on the other hand if my blood sugar levels are in the normal range, I shouldn't have any symptoms of hypoglycemia? Or there is a possibility to suffer from hypoglycemia symptoms when your blood glucose levels are within the range?
Avatar m tn Glucose peaks 2-3 hours after meals where the normal value is <180 mg/dl and the optimum is <140 mg/dl. Four hours you should be at or close to normal levels. Q: "If i make daily activity is it normal to have lower values? If i make exercise , can this lower my glucose level." A: Appears these are the same question on activity worded differently. Yes, daily exercise helps to lower your glucose.
Avatar n tn between 70-126 is the number range that many doctors use. But this is for fasting glucose levels only. After meals, it is normal for glucose levels to rise above this, and the numbers quoted as 'normal' vary, depending on which doctor you talk to. I have read that a number of about 140-150 is considered healthy for after-meal sugar levels.
808221 tn?1242747788 Get down to normal weight and try to figure out an exercise routine. Take a brief walk after lunch. Walking really helps to lower and stabilize your glucose levels. Sounds off the wall but it's true. And do make an appointment to see your PCP and have those two organs checked asap. Good luck and good health.
Avatar n tn I have had a blood sugar test and gave a reading of 6.1 about 1 hour after a breakfast (Weetabix, Milk, Orange Juice). I have to go back and have repeat test but after having nothing to eat approx 9 hours beforehand....will this give an increased or decreased reading.
Avatar m tn While I'm logging my sugar levels I see that in the morning it is anywhere from 109 to 145 and during the day it is usely lower except 2-3 times were it was as high as 180 2 hours after meals but generally it is same before or after meals sometimes even lower then prior to the meal and usely before I go to bed it is around 110 and then in the morning it is higher. Is this normal having the number higher when I get up then before going to bed ??
798555 tn?1292791151 History: I posted here in the past, as my fasting glucose was between 100-110 for almost 2 years, per clinic testing. Ac1 was OK but showed a pattern of increasing to the upper part of the acceptable range. So I took action when Drs did not seem to be interested in being pro active. That is the problem with western medicine....wait till its too late. The last few clinic tests showed fasting glucose in the 90's, and my new glucose meter just showed 93 this morning, looking much better.
452066 tn?1400630477 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?
325405 tn?1262293778 Now that I have type II, what are the ranges to aim for for blood sugar levels for fasting and then for 2 hours after a meal? Right now, I'm testing about 100 to 110 in the morning and about 110 to 130 after meals. If I forget to take my metformin at night, my fasting level is usually around 120 to 130. But, with the medicine it is 100 to 110 fasting. Is this good? Is it supposed to be under 90? Or can I not aim for that goal since I'm a diabetic and is it unrealistic?
Avatar n tn To be in the safe you need to be <=100 fasting, 80-120 normal waking, <140 after meals. Every time you go over 140 you are doing damage. Your doctor might say 160 or something is OK, but I've read health websites abroad and elsewhere most would say keep 140 or lower. 115 average is high since that number includes your fasts/wakeup and meals. You actually need to track the fasting and meal averages separate (get a phone diabetes app that will do this).
Avatar n tn More often than not exercise will lower blood glucose levels, but there are certain circumstances under which blood glucose levels can actually increase....... You are having fasting blood glucose levels of 110 before exercise... During strenuous exercise your muscles need more glucose so they send a signal for more energy which comes from the blood glucose or stored glycogen in your liver.
194838 tn?1303432144 A diabetic senior takes his blood sugar and knows that if he takes 750 mg Metformin, for example, after two hours the glucose levels will be near normal. Once he establishes that routine, he need not take the blood stick. You need to plan meals to establish a "standard" least in theory. I believe that "intensive" blood sugar sticks are necessary until you get a "handle" on exactly how your body deals with food.
Avatar n tn If you think your having a problem this early you should probably start checking your blood sugar levels. Normal levels are between 90 - 120. After you eat not over 180. If your running higher than 120 first thing in the am you might have a problem and need to contact your GP. ScheringPlough's Commitment to Care website and TX side effets talk about sugar levels on TX.
Avatar m tn But since about 4 to 5 months i have been observing that the fasting glucose levels are higher than the post lunch levels. .
Avatar n tn Blindness, kidney failure, and wounds that won't heal are also high risk given your current levels. With your blood sugars this high you need to be taking insulin. You should be taking fast acting insulin to cover meals and long acting insulin to keep your sugars stable and at optimal level in between. You need to see a doctor and get properly monitored and prescribed medications. Do you have a blood sugar meter? If you don't, please get one. your meter should be your best friend.
Avatar n tn I have been using a glucose meter that I was prescribed and there are days where my glucose have been what I consider to be normal, then there are days where I will run low an hour after meals or in the middle of the night.
