No, it is normal to get a spike after eating and a 1 hour measurement after eating is not very meaningful.

If it is higher still after two hours, then still higher, and too high before the next meal, then there is a concern.

If it is back to your baseline before the next meal, not a problem.

Fasting blood sugar in the morning is a better measurement.

Hemoglobin A1C blood testing will tell you how you are doing over all.

OK, let me know if you have more questions.

Also, please click a positive rating on the rating scale. [This must be done manually]. In fact, a 5 rating squares me with just answer and allows me to provide prompt and accurate service to you, but does not increase your cost. And, I will be here for any follow up needed.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
