My Sugar Level Is 270 After Food
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
My glucose is 200 with food. Am taking Metformin(500mg) one after breakfast, and one after dinner. Is my glucose in danger level with food?
Frequency: A single reading of 200 after eating is not as concerning as repeated levels of over 200 over several days. Many factors affect post-prandial (after meal) glucose. Meals with adequate protein, fat and fiber will help slow glucose absorption and may improve post-prandial glucose levels. Alternatively diabetic or other meds may need to be increased/adjusted. ...Read more

My blood glucose level(2 hrs after meal) is 300 immediately after masturbation, i am type 2 and my normal BG is 160-180 after meal. Is this normal?
No, not normal: Hi. We don't know what you're using to manage your diabetes, but no, a 300 after a meal is not normal (and masturbating had nothing to do with that). And your "normal" BG range of 160-180 is not normal either. Your A1c forms the basis for assessment of risk of diabetic complications, not your infrequent BG testing. I suggest you talk with your doc, with A1c i mind to fine-tune your regimen. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I am 82 years. My blood sugar level is fasting 79 and after meals 219. What is the cause of this wide gap?
Insulin issues: It may be that you are having trouble producing enough Insulin right after a meal to control the blood sugar. But it eventually corrects. Therefore, do not eat large meals and do not eat a diet high in starches or sweets. You do not want to overtax your pancreas because that might push you into full fledge diabetes! ...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
My glucose level is 73 but my hba1c is 7.8 am i diabetic? And what is the fastest way to decrease hba1c due to work requirement. Any food suggestions?
Yes: Hemoglobin a1c is a good measure of diabetes status. A normal reading is around 5. A reading of 7.8 is very abnormal. The good news is you can change that by what you eat - go low carb (search low carb diets on the internet). That number will change slowly though because a1c is a 3 month average of blood sugar levels. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not helpful: You have to wait at least 2 hours following a meal. If i recall, at 2.5 hours your blood sugar was down to 127 mg/dl which is normal. You also had a normal fasting blood sugar and normal hba1c in the recent past. These results are very reassuring. Please discuss with your doctor when you should be reevaluated. Home meters can't make a diagnosis. All results need to be confirmed in a lab. ...Read more
