Why getting blood sugar levels 250-400 mg/dl after eating?

After eating, the intake of carbohydrates we take with food increases the levels of glucose in our bloodstream. So, there is a peak of hyperglycemia after we eat.

In normal people, the body increases the levels of insulin in order to neutralize the increased glucose levels.

In diabetic people, this compensatory mechanism does not work properly, due to the improper production of insulin, or to the decreased response of the cells towards insulin, or both.

So, glucose builds up in the bloodstream causing hyperglycemia.
