Re: GD - what time frame do you test after you eat?

  • I am supposed to check 2 hrs after, but I know that some do 1 hr.  The numbers differ depending on your time.  I try to get it as close to the exact time, but it is usually give or take a few minutes.

  • I check one hour after I eat, and my doctor like to see my numbers under 120.

  • 1 hour after my last bite after breakfast, lunch, dinner.

    numbers should be under 125
    fasting #'s should be under 90

    good luck

  • 2 hrs after my first bite, numbers below 120
  • 1 hour after my last bite, I try to do it within 5 minutes of this.

  • I test as close to one hour after as I can.

  • As close to two hours after my first bite as I can get it.
  • 1 hour.  Sometimes I am not one hour on the dot, but I know the rules:

    Need to be under 140 at 1 hour and under 120 at 2 hours so as long as I am under one of those or close enough, my doc is not concerned.  I just mark it if I test at the wrong time.

    EDIT:  I test at 1 hour 90% of the time, but I am not going to whip my meter out on the highway or while I am at a client dinner.

  • I test at 1 hour after my first bite.  I'm supposed to be under 7.8 (140.4) at the 1 hour mark or under 6.8 (122.4) at the 2 hour mark.  

    Like others have said I test at the one hour mark most of the time but if I'm out for dinner or in transit I wait until the 2 hour mark.    

  • I was told 2 hours after my 1st bite of each meal.
