Hi there!

I understand your concern! I have gone through your medical history carefully and understood your concern.

A blood sugar level two hours after eating, in non diabetic subjects should be less than 140mg/dl.

I see that you are taking glycomet, it makes me think you are a diabetic patient. It would be great if you could send the exact dose of glycomet recommended from your doctor.

A blood sugar level of 196 mg/dl two hours after eating in diabetic patients is considered within the acceptable range. The oral hypoglycemiant med you are taking once a day is doing well in controlling your blood sugar levels so far.

However, I also advise my diabetic patients when visiting my clinic about implementing healthy lifestyle and diet habits as following:

1. Try to be more physically active. Walking or jogging for at least 30 min/day will also help keep your blood glucose within normal range.

2. Watch what you eat: stay away for high carb/high calorie foods. Instead, try to eat fresh and healthy foods like veggies, fruits, fish, etc.

3. There are certain herbs that have been shown effective in maintaining the blood sugar well controlled.

They include some spice such as cinnamon, herbs like fenugreek, gymnema sylvestre, bitter melon, etc. You can have them cooked or can take their extract in type of supplement.

Hope I answered your question!
I would be glad to help you if you have any further questions!

Management Guide for Fasting sugar 67, after eating 195
by: Dr.Albana

Hi Ravi,

Thank you for writing to us your health concern.

You say that your fasting blood sugar level (fbsl) is 67, while 2 hours after eating it goes up to 195 mg/dl.

Your fbsl is within normal range. For your information, normal fasting blood glucose should be withing 60 to 110 mg/dL.

Yours is 67, which is perfectly normal. It tells you to start having your breakfast and feed healthy.

With regards to your post-prandial blood glucose(bg) of 195 that you measured 2 hours after eating, I can say as following:

- Normally, bg is raised after eating. However, 2 hours after having your meal, it is supposed to get down to normal levels.

In your case, you say, that it goes up to 195 and does not get down.

That is explained with the calories you have included in your meal. In other words, foods you consumed had much more calories than your body might assimilate.

To my opinion, you should:
- have your meals regularly
- avoid heavy meals or foods high in calorie
- have more fresh foods, fruits, vegetables, low fat dairies
- be more physically active, especially after having a meal take a walk for 30 minutes
- increase water intake

After 1 week of implementing such changes, measure your blood sugar after eating again, and record the result and write back to me.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need further assistance. I'd be glad to help you further.
