  • Blood glucose question

    I am not diabetic but I have a question. How much should a non diabetic blood glucose rise one and two hours post meal? Is is normal for a blood glucose level to rise 40 to 50 point in one hour e.g. From 93 pre meal to 152 one hour after post meal?

    Blood Glucose Answer


    It is normal for a diabetic and preferred for them to have a rise of 40-50 points following a meal. More than that indicates they have eaten too large a portion size, that they have eaten too many carbs at one sitting or that they do not have enough medication. As far as a non-diabetic there blood sugar should not exceed 140 since you should have enough insulin to handle any glucose load at any time even one hour. I would not get alarmed but check with your physician. Are you pre diabetic? Did you have an A1C? Have you had a glucose tolerance test? Keep up your exercise which will increase your insulin sensitivity and eat smaller portions. Hope this helps.
