Normal Blood Sugar 1-2 Hours After Eating

Blood sugar (glucose) is one of the most important variables in your metabolism. It’s the main source of your energy. What levels of blood sugar before meal and 1-2 hours after eating are considered normal and abnormal? The answer may vary, depending on whether or not you are diabetic and non-diabetic. Why is your blood sugar level important? As the name suggests, blood sugar is sugar (glucose) that circulates in the bloodstream. Glucose is required by the body to make energy to support your activity throughout the day. If you have diabetes, it is easier to rise. Actually diabetes is harmless, as long as you can control your blood glucose as well! But the problem occurs when your blood glucose level is out of control, causing some serious complications! Both too high and too low blood sugar is bad for your body. Therefore, it’s important to keep it normal! For non-diabetics, abnormal level of blood glucose may signal pre-diabetes stage.

    I just had my worst low sugar episode

    Hands shaking so badly, I can hardly type. Ate a burrito and now a banana. My bgl was 69. I'm going to make an appt with the doc and buy those glucose tablets everyone recommends.
    My only other alternative to eat was sugar, but I didn't know if I should do that.

    Some are talking about having bad experiences because their blood sugars are in the 60's and 80's, but these are normal blood sugars. You should not be experiencing these kinds of symptoms unless you go below 60. Then a small amount of sugar to bring your readings up and some protein to keep them up is the proper treatment.

    Be thankful that 69 has been your worse experience with low bs. Mine has gone down into the 40s and 30s. I know how you feel however with the shaking, etc. And it can be very scary. I keep the Glucose Tabs on hand all the time, and they seem to get my bs back up faster than anything else. Sometimes all I have to do is eat a 1/4 of a tablet and in just a few minutes my bs is back up to a more normal level. I am on the pump, so when mine goes low, I suspend my pump for about 30 min., and eat the glucose tab, check my bs in 30 minutes, and if everything is ok, I resume my pump and everything is fine. It does depend on how low my bs goes as to how much of the tablet I eat. You just have to work with them to see how quickly and how much I need to regulate my bs. But they do work, and work great!
