Understanding blood glucose levels

Q:  What is the normal rise in blood glucose levels for those without diabetes? For instance, if me and a friend eat the same meal and I’m a type II diabetic, would our blood glucose levels be the same or would the
“normal” response always be less than 120?

A:  People with diabetes respond differently to meals than non-diabetics.  Normal blood sugar after eating is less than 140 mg/dL.  The goal for a diabetic after eating is less than 180 mg/dL.  To learn more about blood sugar control click here.
