I Had A Heavy Asian Lunch And Post Two Hour Glucose Level Is 115 Is That Good
The blood sugar concentration or blood glucose level is the amount of glucose (sugar) present in the blood of a human or animal. The body naturally tightly regulates blood glucose levels as a part of metabolic homeostasis. Glucose is the primary source of energy for the body's cells, and blood lipids (in the form of fats and oils) are primarily ...Read more

I am a type 2 diabetic. I tested my blood glucose level afterdinner. One meter showed 111 while the other showed 123.Which one is correct?
I am a 29 year old female, 5'4", 110 lbs. Is 115 a normal blood glucose reading 3 hours after dinner or is that considered high (pre-diabetic)?
Likely normal: You have a normal BMI. A blood glucose under 140 two hrs after eating is still considered normal. A better assessment to see if you are pre-diabetic is to get a fasting glucose, triglycerides, HDL cholesterol level, and blood pressure. If you have any 3 of the following 5 criteria you are considered pre-diabetic: waist >35 in, fasting glucose >100, triglycerides >150, HDL <50, BP > 130/85 ...Read more

What is a normal blood sugar after a meal? #nqlu my boyfriend is a diabetic and had a 177 blood sugar level after our meal. Mine was 157. Is that normail?
The : The most important point to stress here is when the blood sugar is taken after a meal. Two hours after a meal is a true measure of how well your body is allowing the sugar you consumed to be taken up by the cells( role of insulin). If you take it around an hour after, that is merely an indication of how much sugar you ingested at the meal and does not really tell us much. Therefore the two hour is what will give you useful information. If your boyfriend has well controlled diabetes, then his blood sugar should be 140 or less after two hours. If a non-diabetic such as yourself has a blood sugar greater than or equal to about 140 after two hours then you may have an issue with processing sugar, and will need to see your doctor for diabetes testing. There is no established normal range that we use for non-diabetics at two hours, but most doctors use the 140 cutoff. Please remember the two hour blood sugar test is the most useful. Please see your doctor if you have any further questions or concerns. All the best. ...Read more
Is 5.8 a high fasting blood sugar level? And how come after I eat, an hour later it's 4.0 and I feel a little off/ shakey? Is this normal?
Slightly high: Hi. Yes, your fasting blood sugar is slightly high, but for diagnostics, you can't use finger stick glucose, you use serum glucose (drawn from a vein in your arm). Are you overweight/obese? If fasting serum glucose is 5.8 (or reproducibly above 5.5), you have prediabetes. You may be briskly secreting insulin in response to food intake, giving you your symptoms. Eat healthily and exercise regularly ...Read more
Fasting blood sugar was 110 this morning. Went to 88 half hour after juice for breakfast. Back up to 116 an hour after lunch. Is this a good range?
I am a diabetic who exercises every day, for about 1 hour. Why is my blood glucose high after exercise? It is around 160 to 180.
Exercise in afternoo: Sometimes exercising in the morning can raise sugars in diabetics because of an increase in hormones in the morning that raise sugars. Exercising in the afternoon or evening will almost always lower sugars. Of course, if you eat before exercising, the rise in sugar from eating is greater than the burning of sugar with exercise, so sugars will be higher. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I had a heavy meal of fish and rice, i tested my blood glucose after about 15 min.. It was 139 so i want to know if it is a normal value ?
Sounds high: It is best to test sugars either before eating, or 2 hrs after. Testing 15 min after eating should not be much different than before eating (unless it took a long time to eat). A pre-meal glucose above 100 is abnomal, above 125 is considered diabetes. You should get a hemoglobin a1c for further evaluation. ...Read more
What can I do if my fasting sugar is 106 and 2 hours later after a meal 110. Is this pre diabetes?
Technically the: Fasting (if a lab sugar) is in the prediabetes range, but not the post meal. However, why are you worried about that it's called. It's all a progression from obesity -> Insulin resistance -> pre diabetes -> true diabetes. Why wait for the name to change. Start to protect yourself now with education, diet, exercise, weight loss and prevention. Don't wait until after the fact. ...Read more
Is a blood sugar reading of 115 three hours after dinner considered normal for a non-diabetic person or is it something to be concerned about?
My fasting glucose level is 84. However, my after meal glucose for 1hr is 152, after 2 hrs is 125 and after 3hrs is 115. Is this normal?
Well.. . no...: but there is a definite pattern here of pre-diabetes type II. In diabetes type II, the body doesn't respond to insulin. The insulin level compensates by going sky high. If sugar in (food) then, the blood glucose is unregulated HIGH because it doesn't respond to insulin to lower it. BUT that high insulin sticks around and when food gone sugar bottoms out. Diet, exercise, weight loss, metformin,etc ...Read more
Would a single chicken nugget affect a cholesterol test?Was fasting for 16 hours and i caved.My levels weren't very high just a bit.Would it raise it?
I felt shaky and low on energy, i took a blood glucose home test an hour after eating and the test was 118. Is this anything to worry about? Im 19.
Blood sugar check: Blood sugar level sounds ok. Try checking when you are having shaky symptoms, as perhaps your blood glucose is dropping low when you are fasting. There are many other possibilities. Are you on medications, e.g. Birth control pills? Send more information about your condition. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My 12 hr fasting blood sugar is 105 mg/ dl today. It is always normal 4yrsago. Im in a lot of stress and eating lot of sweets. Diabetes?
Stress,,: This is a normal blood sugar. The range of fasting blood sugar for adults is from 70 to 110 mg/dl and varies depending on the laboratory. If it's been higher, stress and sweets can be a very likely reason, especially if you're diagnosed as a type 2 diabetic. But this sugar is normal, so it'd be wise to see your doctor and get reevaluated, and also stop some of the sweets and stress. Good luck. ...Read more
