I am a 42 year old female Diabete and after you eat breakfast and take your blood sugar test 1 hour later what should it be. Is 110 too high if you are not fasting?

User avatar Hi lowsugar,
The aim to Diabetes control is keeping glucose levels as near normal as possible to prevent Diabetic related complications since uncontrolled Diabetes affects all major organs of the body. According to the American Diabetes Association the desired postprandial (after meals) level, usually done two hours after beginning a meal should be less than 180 mg/dl (<10.0 mmol/l).
