In brief: Pre-diabetes, maybe

It sounds like your blood sugar is rising quickly after you eat.
If you are not diabetic this means that your body is able to get the sugar back to normal limits by the usual two hour testing time. However, you may be in the pre-diabetic stage. Talk to your doctor about this and perhaps get some more detailed siugar metabolism tests.
