Hi Anonymous

If you are not diabetic I am wondering how and why you checked your blood glucose. Are you having symptoms of diabetes? Or just curious?

Usually, if you see a health care provider for diabetes testing, a post-meal (called post-prandial) blood glucose is measured 2 hours after you eat. This gives time for your body to respond to the food. This measurement is normally supposed to be under 140 in the US. But we treat people, not labs, so if there are other symptoms or things going on with you, a single post-meal glucose with no health history or other information is basically meaningless.

If you have other symptoms or concerns, please write again or see your provider. No lab measurement should be considered in a vacuum. Thank you for writing.
