What's the MAX blood sugar spike a non-diabetic person could have that's still considered normal, i.e. shortly after eating, a high carb meal? 200?

What's the MAX blood sugar spike a non-diabetic person could have that's still considered normal, i.e. shortly after eating, a high carb meal? 200?

Not standardized: Hi. Finger stick blood glucose measurement is not approved for diagnosis, and there is no standardized value for "shortly after" "a meal". The standard for a challenged glucose is the 75 gram oral glucose tolerance test done in the fasting state. 2 hours after a 75 g glucose load, serum glucose should be under 140 to be normal; over 200 is diabetes; in between is impaired glucose tolerance. ...Read more

My wife today had glucose test

Fasting - 108
After eating lots of carbs and after 1 hour 84
Is it normal. We are suspecting lab has reversed readings?

108/84 or 84/108?: Even if the lab should have reported 84 and 108 in that order, I don't know why this was ordered. 84 and 108 are both normal. For now I suspect that diabetes is not a concern. Please let me know if I have missed something here. ...Read more

My blood sugar seems better in the morning after eating a lot of carbs before bed. Why would that be?

My blood sugar seems better in the morning after eating a lot of carbs before bed. Why would that be?

If you have: Diabetes you do not want to eat at bedtime. You need to follow proper diet, exercise and medication to keep your sugar normal the entire 24 hours. If you monitored your sugar during the night, you's find it went up a lot and then came down. The high sugar overnight is just as dangerous as high sugar any other time of the day. ...Read more

I FEEL GAS AND BLOATING AFTER EATING WHOLE GRAIN NB I DONT HAVE CELIAC DISEASE WHAT SHOULD I DO SHOULD I REPLACE WHOLE GRIAN BY REFIEND CARB?

I FEEL GAS AND BLOATING AFTER EATING WHOLE GRAIN NB I DONT HAVE  CELIAC DISEASE WHAT SHOULD I DO SHOULD I REPLACE WHOLE GRIAN BY REFIEND CARB?

Bloating after meal: Many people think that they have celiac and don't. They unnecessarily go on a gluten free diet. The diagnosis is made by a blood test showing the presence of specific antibodies. If the diagnosis has been ruled out, you may have a sensitivity to gluten or irritable bowel and may want to try a low carb diet. If you drink milk with a meal, this could be the culprit if you are lactose intolerant. ...Read more

After eating 75 grams of carbs (french bread) on relatively empty stomach, 1 hour gluc level was 190. 2 hour gluc level was 127. Normal? Pre-Diab?

After eating 75 grams of carbs (french bread) on relatively empty stomach, 1 hour gluc level was 190.  2 hour gluc level was 127.  Normal?  Pre-Diab?

Probably normal: Hi. That is not a valid test. The OGTT uses 75 g liquid glucose; French bread is not an equivalent. And the OGTT uses serum glucose, not finger stick capillary glucose. You would also heed the fasting glucose, a standard part of an OGTT. Having said all that, your values could easily be normal. If you're worried, see your doc and do the REAL OGTT. Eat healthily and exercise regularly. Good luck. ...Read more
