Sure. The range varies a bit but less than 120 after the one, two, and three hour period is considered normal

No, the number if checked one hour after a meal or two hours or three hours is normal if it's less than 120.

I am asking you as my dad told me that on hour post meal is normal till 140 & sometimes till 160 ?

& for the 2 hours post meal is normal if less than 125 ?

Sorry for my many questions ?

Regards

Peter

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.

Sometime it can be that high it really depends on what exactly is eaten before. Although I would say that the 160 range would suggest a blood sugar problem

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

if the meal was including rice can 140 considered normal 1 hour post meal ?

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.

Yes--no problem there
