There are different professional opinions on this subject as to what is considered a safe increase and reasonably good bg two hours after a meal. I am referring to generally speaking on this subject. What is your opinion on this matter, and what does your medical expert recommend?

Just goes to show you! I've heard 140, 180, and 140 to 180. Now 160, and I've been told a different # by pratically every doctor I've seen over the years. One thing in common with all is definitely avoid going over 180. Currently, my two hour goal is 140 as suggested by my current endo. Yes, everyone is different, but so are many doctors and their opinions.

Hi jigsaw, I've only been diagnosed for a short time so I'm certainly no expert, but my endocrinologist wants my postprandial bg between 140-180 mg/dL.

Thankyou Diabrettic! I have heard 140 as a limit, and also 180. Seems like your endo is playing it safe, he included both.
