A 46-year-old male asked:

Gluc levels great 3-4 hours after a meal (78-85). But higher 8-10 hours after a meal (90-100). Is the fact that it rises after MORE time concerning?

Glucose: The numbers you quoted are not really concerning. The glucose typically rises if you stay fasting for a long period of time since you liver start converting glycogen to glucose to provide a continuous supply of glucose.
