Hi all, new to the forum but have a question. The only issues I've ever had with my blood sugar was that it would drop to low. I solved that problem with eating more protein in the morning. About 2 months ago I noticed some symptoms (my mom is type 2 diabetic). I began testing my BG the last 2 days.

fasting- 80
at breakfast- 95
1 hr after eating- 152
2 hr after eating- 130

What are your opinions on these readings.

Hello there.

Your fasting and before breakfast numbers are fine although the 15 jump for a non diabetic is a little more than I'd expect. How long after your fasting test did you have breakfast?

Your post meal numbers are on the high side but no doctor would worry about them. Ideally you're looking for below 140 at one hour and 120 at two. What was in the meal and was this your breakfast result? (if not, what was your reading before you started eating?)

There is a very useful site that you might well find helpful. It's Blood Sugar 101 and you might find this section particularly useful Healthy Blood Sugar Targets

Without knowing more about your diagnosis and management methods, it's nigh onto impossible to make any comment on your blood sugar levels. If you would please, click over to the Introductions board and tell us more about yourself.

Thanks, and welcome aboard!
