Question: What should my blood sugar levels be after I eat?
|Dr. Louis Christiansen|
Dr. Louis Christiansen, with the Sharp Rees-Stealy Downtown Endocrinology Department, responds:
Your blood sugar level should be less than 140 mg/dl two hours after eating. You can lower this level by eating fewer carbohydrates, going for a walk after your meal or adjusting your medications with the help of your doctor.
