Recently blood glucose of 109 two hours after eating (postprandial)?

Recently blood glucose of 109 two hours after eating (postprandial)?

That would be normal: If from a vein, finger-sticks aren't fully accurate. Normal 65-105 when drawn out of a vein while fasting. Various authorities have different "normal" levels. There are, however, no exact cut-offs, it's all a continuium. Two hour post meal should be less than 130-140, and any glucose >200 at any time suggests diabetes. An a1c >6% is also suggests diabetes. ...Read more

Blood Sugar (Definition)

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

Can you please define normal blood glucose numbers three hours after eating?

Fasting normal: 65-105 when drawn out of a vein while fasting. Various authorities have different "normal" levels. There are, however, no exact cut-offs, it's all a continuium. Finger sticks are not accurate enough for diagnosis. Two hour post meal should be less than 130-140, and any glucose >200 at any time suggests diabetes. An a1c >6% is also suggestive and needs further evaluation. See diabetes. Org for info. ...Read more

Blood glucose level reaches 200 three hours after eating dinner. Then insulin. How long should I wait to see the lowest possible near normal score?

Blood glucose level reaches 200 three hours after eating dinner. Then insulin. How long should I wait to see the lowest possible near normal score?

Blood sugar: Rapid acting insulin lasts from 4-6 hours and reaches peak effect in 2-3 hours at which time your blood sugar would be at its lowest as a general rule. However if you had taken a long-lasting insulin earlier in the day, it would also be exerting an effect hours later. Your physician who knows your case best is also best qualified to answer your question. ...Read more

Blood serum glucose was 71 about an hour after eating. Is this too low? There have been issues with dizziness. What is an ideal threshold?

Blood serum glucose was 71 about an hour after eating. Is this too low? There have been issues with dizziness. What is an ideal threshold?

Fasting glucose: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, you should discuss the matter with your doctor to have a fasting blood glucose and if need be a glucose tolerance test. The information you provided is insufficient for a diagnosis.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

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? I'm 19.

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? I'm 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 more

What exactly is the normal blood glucose levels when fasting and after eating?

See below: Fasting blood sugar normally is between 70-90 mg. Any reading of 100 or over is considered abnormal. After eating blood sugar levels will typically go up above 100mg but rarely go up higher than 150-160mg. If it is going up above 180mg, it is abnormal and you may be heading for diabetes. Fasting blood sugars between 100 to 125 mg are borderline high, called prediabetes, require attention. ...Read more

Why do I get silvery squiggly lines that move from one side of vision to teh other after eating? Is it related to high or low blood glucose?

Why do I get silvery squiggly lines that move from one side of vision to teh other after eating? Is it related to high or low blood glucose?

Visual Migraine?: A visual migraine is the visual aura of a migraine headache, but without the headache. This can be triggered by certain foods. People will see in both eyes either zig zag flashing lights or an effect like heat coming off of a car for 5-30 minutes, and the visual disturbance moves peripherally to the side and then stops. There is usually a blind spot in the vision as well, where the lines are. ...Read more

My blood glucose drops in the first 15 minutes after eating and then starts to rise before dropping significantly again 90 minutes later. Why? (non diabetic)

Normal: Your body senses the carbohydrate load, and releases insulin. The Insulin pushes the sugar into your cells, so there may be a time when the body hasn't absorbed the sugar yet, and the sugar already in your system has been pushed into cells. Once you start absorbing the sugar from your gut, your blood glucose stabilizes. ...Read more

I tested my 3 yr old child 1 hr after eating, with a home blood glucose test and it was 168. Is that ok?

I tested my 3 yr old child 1 hr after eating, with a home blood glucose test and it was 168. Is that ok?

Reason for Testing?: There are lots of variables to take into consideration including the meter accuracy and if hands were completely dry after cleaning. Laffy taffy on the patient's hands was the reason a small boy was brought into the office for a blood sugar of 327 mg/dl. Cleaned hands and he was 87. Best to also wait 2 hr after food before test. If you're concerned enough to test, please see your child's doctor. ...Read more

My blood glucose levels are never over 100 even after eating. I feel shaky and light headed when they are in 70's, should I be concerned? Non diabetic

Concerned?: Low BP or glucose can do this. Frequent small meals are advised. Stay well hydrated. Lay flat if you feel faint. Keep your brain happy it needs glucose and a good perfusion pressure. Ask your doctor for help if these symptoms re-occur. ...Read more

I'm obese, metabolic and have high fasting blood glucose after eating only vegies and lean meat for over a week, how can loose this weight?

Low calorie: Watch your calories. Avoid processed foods with unnatural ingredients. No fast food, and be careful if you eat out as most restaurants have high-calorie foods. Find filling, low calorie foods like whole wheat. Also pay attention to what you drink-soda, alcohol, etc can have a lot of calories. Exercise regularly. To lose weight you need to burn more calories than you consume. ...Read more

I get extremely exhausted immediately after eating however I am not diabetic, my fasting blood glucose is very normal. What is happening?

I get extremely exhausted immediately after eating however I am not diabetic, my fasting blood glucose is very normal. What is happening?

Eval of exhaustion: Your fasting glucose probably won't help explain what is happening after eating, when you are clearly not in fasting mode. It could be helpful to test your blood glucose right after eating, if that is possible. Exhaustion can be caused by things other than changes in glucose. I would ask your physician to evaluate more thoroughly. Simple sugars and high-fat foods can also play a role. ...Read more

Could palpitations after eating be due to hyper insulinism? My blood glucose always drops next with also cold chills and I turn pale and purple

Could palpitations after eating be due to hyper insulinism? My blood glucose always drops next with also cold chills and I turn pale and purple

Yes: You list severe reactive hypoglycemia in your conditions so this applies to you, not to everyone: excess insulin stimulates a catecholamine response. In other words, it stimulates secretion of adrenalin. Adrenalin can, in fact, precipitate extra beats in susceptible people. So it is possible. ...Read more

What's your question: Why was your serum Insulin checked in first place? What's the reference range given for insulin? How did your ordering physician interpret test for you? Why was blood drawn after a meal b/c you need to be fasting in order to calculate your homa-ir? As you can see, too many questions need to be addressed before we even get to your question, whatever it is! ...Read more

Why is my fasting glucose always higher (90s) than my post-prandial glucose (70s)? I am not diabetic nor on and meds that affect blood sugar.

Why is my fasting glucose always higher (90s) than my post-prandial glucose (70s)? I am not diabetic nor on and meds that affect blood sugar.

Don't worry: Your blood glucose results are in the normal range. To maintain good health, exercise about 30 minutes/day, 5 days/week, have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, nuts, legumes, lentils, beans, small amounts of lean meats, low fat milk products, limit saturated fats, no tobacco and no more than one alcoholic drink a day. ...Read more

I know my a1c and I check blood glucose fasting and post Prandial daily. I eat very low carb and workout daily. Why do I need a dx???

Dx: If your A1c and fasting blood glucose are all within range there seems to be no need to check your blood glucose more than once a week. If the 'once a week" gives you bad results, go back to treatment. If not - check your blood sugar once a week. If that is OK - relax and enjoy.
If not, please see your primary doctor. ...Read more

What's the importance of recording my fasting and postprandial blood glucose results?

What's the importance of recording my fasting and postprandial blood glucose results?

Glucose monitoring: The whole purpose of monitoring your blood sugar levels is to let the doctor know what they are running so that the doctor can adjust your medications. Having good blood sugar control is essential in preventing complications. If the doctor isn't getting those values then I would wonder why you're checking it also. Bring in the averages or ranges of blood sugars when you see your doc. ...Read more
