Blood sugar levels one hour after a meal

Common Questions and Answers about Blood sugar levels one hour after a meal


452066 tn?1400630477 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.
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 What is your blood pressure like? Changes in blood pressure from "regular" blood pressure values (either going up or down), along with raised cholesterol and triglyceride levels can indicate a problem with the kidneys. Have the doctor do a urine test. If abnormal, see a nephrologist and have your kidney function tested. It is common with persons who have either hyper- or hypoglycemia to "lose" proteins along with sugar via the kidney.
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.

Avatar n tn I have been monitoring my blood sugar for about a month now. I am usually around the 80 range 2 hours after a meal. Yesterday I only had two pieces of toast for breakfast and My sugar read 58. I did not check before walking two miles this afternoon. I had a 121 when I got home about 20 minutes after the walk. Is this normal?
Avatar f tn * Bedtime – to compare against morning fasting level Secondly, it appears you are experiencing what they call Reactive Hypoglycemia, which is low blood sugar that occurs after a meal — usually one to three hours after eating. Things to do to combat this: * Eat several small meals and snacks throughout the day, no more than three hours apart.
Avatar f tn "What does this indicate and how serious is it?" Testing one hour after eating results in a false/positive. Glucose [blood sugar] from food consumed has not plateaued in your bloodstream and still is on the rise. Proper test times are: 1. Fasting - 8-10 hours no food or colored liquids, usually done first thing in morning. 2. Preprandial - Before meal to get a baseline measurement 3. Postprandial - 2-3 hours after a meal to see how foods consumed affected glucose levels. 4.
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 [Except maybe to agree to low dose metformin to address the fasting numbers]. The higher blood sugar after 3 hours, is based on digestion rate. If you are eating foods, particularly with lots of fats, then the blood sugar rise will be delayed. From what you are saying, you probably are at long term risk of diabetes. However, if that risk is ever realized, no one can say.
Avatar f tn • Eat several small meals and snacks throughout the day, no more than three hours apart. • Eat a well-balanced diet including lean and nonmeat sources of protein and high-fiber foods including whole grains, fruit and vegetables. • Avoid or limit sugary foods, especially on an empty stomach. Of course, further evaluation by a doctor is warranted.
Avatar m tn Check if it can raise your blood sugar levels. Some high blood pressure medicine can raise the sugar levels. Know your body. It is the inly one you will have.
Avatar f tn For a few weeks my fasting blood sugar will be between 100-127. My spikes after meals will go over 200. It takes about four hours after a meal for me to return to my pre-meal state of 100-127. Then, suddenly, my fasting levels will be 56-72 each morning. No matter what I eat my blood sugar will remain under a hundred and then quickly drop back down to the 56-72 range. This will last a couple of weeks before I return to the high levels again.
Avatar n tn This may be caused by a direct vasodilation effect (increase in internal size of blood vessels) of suddenly higher blood glucose levels. The traditional definition of hypoglycemia is an abnormal lowering of blood sugar levels after the body overreacts to carbohydrates with excessive insulin production. Researchers now believe that this lowering of blood sugar levels is not the only cause of symptoms.
Avatar n tn After eating and taking humalog, if I see after one hour sugar is high and walk within home it dcreases considerably. If I sit down, it seems, it does not want to decrease. Please explain the effect of walking on sugar up and down. When I should walk, when I should not. Please explain me, for testing correct basal dose, how should be the bed time sugar, should I eat some snack then or not. I am not successful in fixing basal dose. My weight is 90 Kg. It should be beteween 18 to 45 units.
7058746 tn?1393439020 my first pregnancy and just found I have it for this pregnancy as well. One of the ways to control your blood sugar is to take a 15-20 minute walk about an hour after you eat 2 to 3 times a day.
Avatar n tn To top that meal off I had a 2 scoop ice cream.An hour after that meal I checked my blood sugar for the next couple of hours and was pretty shocked. Here is my blood sugar readings: 3pm-267 4pm-213 5pm-179 6pm-118 7pm-70 I feel that a very low carb diet is covering up possible type 2 diabetes,feel free to give your opinion it is much appreciated.
149675 tn?1416676733 IMHO everyone who is at risk should buy a blood sugar meter and test after a good carb laden meal. Do it one hour after and then again two hours after. If your sugar at one hour is over 140 and at two hours over 120, you do have a problem that needs to be dealt with. Also, on the A1c test, which tells you what your average blood sugar has been for the past three months, you should not have a number higher than 6. The docs will tell you that up to 6.5 or so is normal; it is NOT!! 6.
Avatar n tn Usually 1 hour after eating blood sugars rarely exceed 140 mg/dl, and return to normal levels within 2-3 hours. If your test results during these time periods fall between 100 and 125 mg/dl you are considered prediabetic. Above 126 mg/dl is considered diabetes. As you can see having levels of "always 115 to 147" is not normal. Testing anytime is not a good idea as it fails to provide an accurate insight on your blood sugar levels.
Avatar m tn To answer your question, so far there have been two tests. One was random, about five hours after the last time I ate, and it was 94. The other was a proper fasting test, and it came out 77. I haven't done the two-hours-post-meal one yet.
Avatar n tn Your fasting is 215 and your after meal is 415, when how long after the meal do you test? What do you eat that raises your BG 200 pts? We do know Carbohydrates raise BG.... ALL CARBS RAISE BG! whole wheat will raise BG, rice,potato, most fruit, pasta... if it has carbs it will raise BG.
446335 tn?1223951956 A recent pre-op blood test showed a blood sugar level of 139. My doctor had me do the 2-hr. glucose tolerance test today. Don't have the results yet but the blood sugar test they did initially showed a level of 140. I know both of those put me into the category of diabetic. Runs in the family BTW, father managed blood sugar with Glucotrol. So what can I expect?
944604 tn?1283202525 I need it slightly higher then 106, but I figured once lunch digested and the snack before excercise it should be in the low 100's so I went for a half mile walk, came back and tested it was 102 After Dinner 109 Bedtime 94, so ate pb on a piece of bread and took a glucose tablet and it went up to 104 I felt very frustrated I was trying to follow the meal plan and had low blood sugar anyways and I wanted to go walking with not knowing how much time til I would feel bad.
Avatar f tn What would cause my husband's blood sugar levels to always be high? We discovered he was diabetic 2 1/2 years ago when he had a very, very severe pancreatic attack. Taken by ambulance to the hospital and stayed in ER for about 8 hours. When we returned home, it was only 20 minutes before we were in the car rushing to the hospital again. This time they kept him for 2 weeks. Ok, thats the history. Now I would like to know about these high numbers.
Avatar n tn 100-120 She said that it's recommended that 90-95% of your readings should be in these target ranges to insure that your baby doesn't put on too much weight and make it difficult for your to deliver vaginally. Ifyour blood sugar levels are higher than these suggested numbers, it's like putting your baby in a sugar bath, if you will. what happens then is, the baby's pancreas reacts to the higher than normal levels by spitting out additional insulin to cover the excess sugar.
Avatar f tn However, I have been having some problems with my blood sugar levels. I frequently seem to be having episodes of low blood sugar, only to find that my blood sugar is only on the lower end of normal. My symptoms include feeling faint and dizzy, clammy skin, and pallor. I also feel jittery and nervous.
349463 tn?1333575176 I wouldn't worry Nicole. I think everything will be fine... Quite a few women fail the one hour...I was one of them, but I ate a honey bun the day before. Doyou recall what you ate the day before your test? It could have been something you drank, like a soda or some juice...
Avatar f tn I've had growth scans my whole pregnancy since I had high blood pressure that went away (but still being monitored for preeclampsia) and learned today at 36 weeks I have to go twice a week for growth scans...
Avatar n tn I've even read various doctors give different recommendations that are between 120 and 180 two hours after a meal. I have read on some sites that the 2-hour post-meal measurement begins when you begin the meal, which makes little sense to me. I realize that your body will work during the meal to reduce blood glucose, but until the meal is actually finishing, you're still ingesting more food which may allow your body to retain an elevated blood glucose level.
Avatar n tn 74 1 hour after second meal: 98 2 hours after second meal: 82 Prior to third meal: 77 1 hour after third meal: 111 I know this is a lot of testing, but I'm trying to see how my body is regulating the sugar. I only plan on doing this for a few days, to obtain a baseline. I think it's more beneficial than relying on a single test done at a random time (since I'm not diabetic, I can't see an MD taking urgency with me).
Avatar f tn I played USTA tennis for years, and found that exercise was quite workable if I prepared properly and sipped something like this every few games to keep some fuel going in and prevent glucose levels from STARTING to drop. This makes more sense than eating a huge meal to boost sugar levels up high and then doing the exercise without having any carbs with him.
