A little background. . .I am a 29 year old male. I am not "diabetic" but my father was diabetic. I have been getting my blood glucose reading, as well as my a1c, the last several times that I've had my cholesterol checked. My fasting number have been between 100 and 110. My worst a1c so far has been 5.6. I guess I'm in the "prediabetic" stage.
I'm curious to know - in healthy individuals without diabetes - how high does ones blood sugar spike 1 hour - 2 hours AFTER eating?
What would be the Post Porandial blood glucose threshold that would need to be crossed to suggest that a person has a potential problem?
I'm asking because I just started testing my blood at home and have seen that at times I've spiked as high as 186 and 238 approximately 1 hour after eating. I generally seem to go back down near 100-110 approximately 2-3 hours after eating.
Thank you for your help
