    I'm pre diabetic and recently had a blood test to check for diabetes, kidney function and liver function. I did not fast. I had eaten about 2 1/2 hours before the test. It showed my glucose 155.
    Is this a normal number to have after 2 1/2 hours after eating? Or should the number be lower?

    Hi marip1,
    A person's blood glucose level 2.5 hours after eating, if they do not have pre-diabetes or diabetes, would be under 100 and most likely in the 80's. As a person with type 2 diabetes my goal at 2 hours after eating is to be under 100 and best case would be if I was back in the 80's range.
