Normal blood sugar levels 1 hour after eating

Common Questions and Answers about Normal blood sugar levels 1 hour after eating


Avatar f tn I was wondering about the reactive hypoglycemia and if that's what it could be. This lower blood sugar after eating didn't start until my blood sugars were under the normal limits all throughout the day. I realize it wasn't that low but it was lower than what I was used to. Also, I was wondering if you might know about normal insulin levels? She checked my insulin level and it was 6, she said 0-25 was normal???
Avatar n tn I am not able to go more than 1 1/2 hours without eating or my blood sugars go down. I have had an MRI on my abdomen, which was OK my pancreas was unremarkable. My doctor does not seem to know what is going on (just says that I am on my way to be a full fledge diabetic in the next couple of years) and that I will have these attacks and will have to learn to live with them. I am desperate to see if anyone can give me more information about what might be going on with my blood sugar levels.
Avatar m tn I had went to the emergency last week because of some other symptoms that I have been having. They did a blood work up and my blood sugar level was at a 57. I hadn't eaten anything all day and by the time they had released me I had taken a couple of sips of my daughters sprite and it went up to 98. So the said I was fine. Since then I have been very worried about this so I decided to get myself a meter so that I could test myself.
Avatar n tn I did some searching last night for info about blood sugar levels and treatment but did not turn up anything pertinent. Who knows?! I keep telling myself that somehow it is a good thing and it must mean the tx is working :) lol I guess that is one way to make it through the days!
Avatar f tn Hypoglycemia/ low blood sugar would be considered blood sugar levels less than about 70. Your result of 103 is normal, not hypoglycemia. It is likely that your symptoms may be from other causes. Sometimes headaches can be a sign of not drinking enough - so a glass of water and a few minutes to relax / be quiet - may help a lot. Hope this helps.
Avatar n tn Why is it that sometimes my blood sugar levels rise after walking. First thing in the morning,about an hour after exercise and not eating anything my b/s level goes up by about 4-5 points.
Avatar m tn Hello, a reading of 113 4 hours after lunch is still too high. By that long after eating levels should be back to fasting levels and 140. YOur target should be < 120 (and ideally < 100). Let us know.
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 What is your blood sugar and did you test it before eating anything in the morning or did you test it soon after eating (like 1 or 2 or 3 hours after eating)?
Avatar n tn I recently bought a glucose meter, I have a 14d waking average of 97 and a 30d waking average 95. One hour after eating my reading will be 140-160, and 2 hours after eating it will be 100-120, and 3 hours later it will usually be under 100. So is this diabetic? I ask because I mentioned to someone that both my middle toes had felt like someone was twisting them, and that they were less sensitive on the bottom now, and someone suggested diabetic neuropathy.
Avatar f tn I felt yuck with the 1 hour test so I'm sure the 3 hour is ridiculous. I kinda feel it's a little much making us fast then go drink a big sugar drink and endure 3 hours of sitting and poking at us periodically.
Avatar f tn Many of us control our diabetes by restricting our carbs so that one hour after eating our BG does not go over 140. You could be a LADA diabetic (Late Onset type 1) they often have wildly fluctuating BG as the Beta cells (they make the insulin) get killed off) There is an antibody test for that too. GAD test Diabetes is not the end it is controllable, the horror stories you hear are from NOT controlling your BG.
Avatar n tn I think after giving humalog, body goes in emergency, and some times increases blood pressure and it in turn increases blood sugar. Probably I should take humalog after eating. b. Blood pressure increases as blood sugar goes to normal, Even some times, after pushing insulin ,pressure goes high Before going to bed I take blood pressure medication, push levemir Yestarday evening sugar came down to 7, I was glad, at 5 am I ate, reduced humalog to 11 in place of 13, but after 2 hours, it was 10.
Avatar n tn His regular pediatricians have gotten blood work for glucose levels and whatnot, and everything seems to come out fine. Do these episodes sound like blood sugar "crashes" in your opinion? Also, I have always been curious if these episodes (but on a lesser level throughout the day) have anything to do with what might look like ADHD? Could it all be related somehow? BTW, he is not on any medication. He does take omega-3 and evening primrose (omega-6).
Avatar m tn Hi I have been looking at your posts the last few days and seems you are always having very high sugars, that are not going down. You also mentioned that your sugars are usually above 220. Your current medicine is not working sufficiently to control your blood sugars. Target blood sugar fasting is < 95. Ideally in the 80s. Target post eating is < 140. You blood sugar is more than double normal and this is doing damage to your body.
Avatar n tn Hello, I'm a volunteer and not a medical professional so please check with your doctor to address any concerns you have regarding your particular condition. With that said, below is an excerpt from the Virginia Mason clinic website: which states the norms for blood sugar levels: "A fasting blood glucose test. This test is performed after you have fasted (no food or liquids other than water) for eight hours.
Avatar m tn One tablet of Metformin 500mg extended release Sugar levels: Average fasting sugar level in the morning : 125 mg/dl (varies from 120 to 129) Average sugar level after two hours of breakfast (After taking Metformin): 120mg/dl Average sugar level after two hours of lunch : 150 mg/dl Problem: 1) There is weight loss of about 6 Kgs in the past 2 years. My weight of 56 Kgs became 50 kgs now.
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 85 90 90 106 116 85 Not in any particular order - these are it over a few weeks normally taken in the morning or after a 1--12 hr fast. More interesting in knowing about the results after 1 1/2 hours of eating ...
Avatar f tn Thought I was doing pretty well -- my highest 1 hour post prandial reading had been 140 -- until this afternoon. One hour after eating a tray of takeout sushi from the grocery store I got a reading of 236, immediately followed by a reading of 244 (to make sure it wasn't a machine error). Two hours, some aloe vera juice and a bit of exercise later, it was back down to 88. What does this indicate and how serious is it?
686463 tn?1249920379 Result of 3 hour glucose... My fasting was 67, 1 hour - 160, 2 hour - 163, 3 hour - 120. The 2 hour was a bit over the high max but the rest fell within the range. No GD for me!!! I am still cutting out some carbs and the extra sugary stuff. Feeling good but not sleeping well...
Avatar n tn all fruit, juices and tomatoes, green and colored peppers, it will spike your blood pressure starting about a half hour after eating and lasting for 4 to 5 hours. Here are some links that I found to be most helpful., and Hope this helps. I'm finding that these conditions usually involve more than one physical problem. All involve stress and food.
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 You could be oozing with total testosterone and still be deficient if you also have high levels of binding globulin. Normal levels of bioavailable testosterone are 2.00 to 8.60 nmol/L. That's it. Everything else is irrelevant.
Avatar f tn Results, Triglycerides=2000, Cholesterol=640, THS=300 (yes this correct). Two weeks after blood work doctor's still had no respons with results so after being very persistant they tell him they had to run a Free T4 because they were so shocked with the results and didn't believe they were accurate. Free T4= .11. Doctor's sent him home with thyroid meds and said come back in 3 months for follow up. Is it just me, or are these numbers deadly? especially after 2 years.
Avatar n tn For example, you said that after taking your morning insulin and eating breakfast that your blood sugar level fell. That tells me that your morning dose of insulin is either too high or perhaps you're eating a very light breakfast. If you already eat a substancial breakfast and your blood sugar is falling afterwards, the insulin dose is probably too high and you definitely need to tell your doctor these patterns.
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.
