Blood glucose one hour after eating

Common Questions and Answers about Blood glucose one hour after eating


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 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 I did my yesterday ..
Avatar n tn ( I thought it was a mistake and I had the 3 hour one done and it was abnormal as well. Everything after that was a bit hard. I had a strict diet :( no sugars. Yes I'm not going to lie its hard if you are used to eating sweets. I had to be put in meds to lower my sugar level. I hope everything goes good for you. From the bottom of my heart I do hope you don't have gestational diabetes. Let me know how everything goes :) good luck!!
Avatar n tn Was the one hour fasting? When I did my one hour, it was not fasting, therefore if you ate anything high in carbs prior, your glucose level may have been high. With my last pregnancy (only made it to 9 weeks), they I failed my one hour with over 200, took the 3 hour and passed that...I think being it was fasting. (They have me test early b/c my Mom had Gest. Diabetes)......The blood test is generally more accurate than a regular glucometer.....
Avatar n tn Actually just took it again 30 min later now at 2 hour mark and the blood glocose readings after eating almost 2 bowls of oatmeal w/ skim milk is at: 117 ? Is this an ok number after 2 hrs ?
Avatar f tn Your husband is fine and quite normal. After eating blood glucose [sugar] plateaus in the bloodstream at 2-3 hours. At 1 hour the body hasn't been given ample time to dispose of the excess glucose. The 2 hour level of 101 mg/dl says he's normal. His mom was incorrect to test at 1 hour.
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 n tn If your blood glucose was 61 an hour or two after breakfast, especially if your breakfast was fairly high carb (such as cereal, bread, etc) you might have a specific type of hypoglycemia called reactive hypoglycemia which is people who have low blood sugar after a meal high in carbs. I would suggest seeing your doctor and getting tested to see what type of hypoglycemia you have and to make sure you aren't pre-diabetes.
452066 tn?1400626877 I was told that my insulin levels may be playing a role in this. Yesterday I checked my glucose an hour after eating my lunch which included a tangerine. It was 165. I checked it an hour later and it dropped to 126. Sometimes it will be as low as 85. It was my cardiologist who advised me to see the endocrine doctor.
Avatar n tn I test when I wake up in the AM and a few hours after eating dinner.
Avatar m tn By the time at the cubicle, nearly 1 hour after the 3.6 reading. My blood sugar tested, it is 4.2. So, my body can adjust by itself. I stop all the med now. I told the doctors, I don't think I'm diabetic. But they all said, base on the test ---- YES, I'm diabetic. You know how down I'm, all those med make me not like a human! Lost the quality of life....... I give up my med now.
Avatar f tn For the one hour I was told you just cant eat 2 hours before....the 3 hour would be the fasting one. So they drew blood for the one hour before you drank anything??? They didn't do that for my 1 hour...which was last week.
10043212 tn?1410903340 I also drank about a bottle of water between each blood draw...including one right after drinking the stuff which helped. My results came back normal.
Avatar f tn I've been experiencing lightheadedness after eating for about 8 weeks. I'm 61, not overweight. The lightheadedness is followed by sweating, stiff neck and fatigue. The biggest trigger is refined sugars; it can be as long as an hour delay with other foods. Fruit isn't a trigger. I've tried smaller, more frequent low carb meals, which helps, but not entirely. The symptoms are milder on days when I do cardio.
8924846 tn?1410572901 No eating between 8 and 12 hours prior to drinking the drink and then they draw your blood at the first hour mark after you drink, then the second hour mark after, and finally the third hour mark after and look at the results together. It gives them a better, more measurable comparison of how your body is dealing with your blood sugar. At least, that's my understanding.
Avatar n tn I finally tested again after eating dinner and my sugar got to 90 but the odd thing is the more in range my sugar got the worse my head hurt almost like I had a hangover
Avatar m tn t know why it went too high to 196 and fell back to 115 in one hour. Other than that, my fasting blood glucose range is from 70 to 90, and my BG 2 hours after meal and before bedtime are form 90 to 110. I've been checking my blood sugar for the last two weeks after my doctor gave me the meter. The question to you was right after meal, not before. Before meal is under 100. As I said, I checked right after meal because I was curious. I've never been told to check at this time.
Avatar f tn My first question to you is do you get the shakes no matter what food you eat? 2) Or, the shakes specific to certain types of foods? Here's what I would do if I were in your shoes; ask the doctor for a referral to an Endocrinologist (diabetes specialist). I also suggest you start monitoring and keeping a log of foods you consume. Log what you eat, how much you eat and how you feel directly after, 1 hour, 2 and 3 hours later. Do this for every meal, including snacks.
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.
4989104 tn?1365648962 I flunked the one-hour and passed the three-hour, but my midwife still wants me to monitor my blood sugar until the end of the pregnancy. She said my fasting blood sugar level and first-hour blood draw numbers barely passed. The blood testing is a drag. I sometimes forget to take it. It's been a week, and my numbers look okay for the most part: under 100 before eating and under 140 a couple of hours after eating. Better safe than sorry, I suppose.
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?
Avatar f tn Two months ago, I learned that I was reactive hypoglycemic after a 5 hour glucose fasting test.Glucose after one hour was 188. After two was 114. After three was 128 and after four 63. My doctor told me that my glucose fasting score of 96 on a scale of 70-100 was nothing to worry about, but just bought a one touch and have noticed that in the morning before breakfast so far, I'm at between 96-113 and about 118 an hour after eating. How do I respond to these scores?
Avatar f tn My instructions for my three hour was to not eat or drink anything after midnight...that's it. I finished eating dinner that night at 9pm, my appt was 9am the next morning...I passed with flying colors. Good luck.
