Default Test 1 hour after meal or 2 hours after meal?

Hello - until i got my Dr with blood work results and discuss this I am curious if I should be testing 1 hour after a meal or two hours after a meal?

Welcome to Diabetes Forum. Definitely 2 hours after. I test before each meal and 2 hrs after, like John said. I also test at bedtime and before driving my car. There are also times I test when I am feeling like I might be low or high. Ask all the questions you want, we are here to help.
