In brief: Peak of blood sugar
Blood sugar generally peaks one to two hours after a meal.
This number is just as important as fasting blood sugars are.

In brief: At 45-60 minute
But can also happen at 30 minute depending the type of food being ingested ( fatty food mixed with carbs tends to delay the absorption of glucose from intestine).

In brief: An hour
Depending upon your personal glucose tolerance curve, the highest blood sugar would occur in the one-half to one hour range.
