Glucose levels before prebreakfast and two hours after lunch?

by Asad Khan
(Karachi,Pakistan)

QUESTION: 8 months ago I was diagnosed with diabetes type 2. I was prescribed three pills a day. My glucose fasting level was 220 mg/dl and A1C was 9.1. Body weight was 80 kg.


However, after working out for 4 months daily and keeping an eye on my food intake, I was able to reduce my weight from 80 kg to 64 kg. Because of this, my glucose levels appear to fall within range.

i again went to my doctor for my tests. My glucose fasting level was 64 mg/dl which was done after 12 hours fasting.

I was no longer needed meds. I was removed from taking meds by my doctor. I am checking my glucose readings please tell me if they are in normal range.

This is from a few days back.

Pre-breakfast readings , taken at 9.00 am morning(I normally hit my bed from 12-12:30 night)

Day1. 64 mg/dl
Day 2. 78 mg/dl
Day 3: 92 mg/dl
Day 4: 69 mg/dl

After lunch (taken after two hours, food normally consists of boiled chicken, veggies, chapati roti/made of wheat, lentil etc)

Day1: 104 mg/dl
Day2: 78 mg/dl
Day3: 92 mg/dl
Day4:88 mg/dl

What are your inputs, if they fall within normal range?


ANSWER: Hi there,

First, I want to remind the normal fasting blood glucose level being between 64.8 and 104.4mg/dl. Therefore, all your blood sugar results, no matter fasting or postprandial are excellent.

In addition, you have to know that generally the postprandial blood glucose concentration has to be fewer than 120mg/dl like yours. So, as you can see by yourself everything is ok and you don’t have to worry about anything.

I’m glad that you have found natural way to beat diabetes and this way is really effective, as I can see from the results.

Because of this, I have to congratulate you for the good results and I understand that they are real because of the big efforts of yours.

I hope that you will keep up with the good work, because in this way you will avoid the usage of diabetic drugs in the future.

In addition, I have to tell you that sometimes the obesity leads to insulin resistance and high blood glucose concentration (diabetes).

However, the weight loss improves the glucose metabolism and the high blood glucose level is no longer a problem, if you keep your weight within the normal ranges.

In purpose to understand, which are the normal ranges for body weight, pay attention to the Body Mass Index (BMI) and calculate the BMI, which is perfect for you.

If you want to calculate your BMI, you have to divide your weight in kilograms into your height in meters, which is multiplied by two.

Generally, you have to keep your BMI between 18.5 and 24.9. I know that this is sometimes hard, but I think that you can do it. So, continue with what you are doing, in purpose to avoid further development of diabetes.

Hope it helped!
