Ok so awhile back, I had a blood sugar of 119 like 2 minutes after lunch. How many minutes does it take for your blood sugar to start to change. I had only had breakfast at 6 am. Lunch was around 12:30. Is 119 high,low.

Also what kinda symptoms do you guys get when your bs is low and then when its high?

Your levels should be between 80-120. I have talk to several doctors about this, because I was getting mixed messages. All of the diabetic specialist say 80-120. Check in the morning before you eat, and after every big meal. check if you are feeling bad also.

Your fasting glucose should be between 70 and 120. Your pre-meal should be near these numbers. 2 hours after a meal numbers should be 140 or below. The ADA says 2 hours after a meal numbers should be 180 or below. hope this helps.

spot on! Everyone is a bit different, some people can tolerate a low of 60, but you don't really want to test that theory, or the high. Damage to your body begins at 140, so anytime you can stay under that is good.

I agree with YOU Gabby.we have all our own tolerance.
When I first diagnosed of Type 2, I was into 2 oral meds metformin and amaryl. I cant take the reading of 5 and 6 during dinner time or pre meal.

My head starts to ache, my fingers and feet become cold and the feeling is not good for me
I do tolerate and have a good feeling when my sugar all day is 7 to 8
