    Is 147 a normal after meal blood sugar?

    ok so I have been thirsty and tired so I wanted to...

    I have been thirsty so I wanted to test my blood sugar after every half hour to see what it's doing. I took my blood sugar before eating and it was 120 and this was two hours after my last meal. Now this is my blood sugar levels after having crackers and a pop: 1 hour- 147 2 hours-107  2.5 hour-101  3 hours- 95  3.5 hours- 128  4 hours- 73  Is this ok? Should blood sugar ever exceed 140 after meals? Is it normal for blood sugar to rise after starting to come down? just curious I have autoimmune thyroid problem and diabetes runs in my family and I have been thirsty lately

    i would love to have sugars that low after eating! i have good control but after 35 years of insulin injections and now resistance, i would be thrilled. if i have a 80 sugar reading, i'm shaking-i feel best between 100-120. again, i'm type 1.

    are you waking up in the middle of the night to drink or urinate more frequently? if not, you do not need to worry-if you are drinking diet sodas and other beverages like coffee and tea that can create thirst. maybe you need more water? Dr. Mike

    ok so now my blood sugar was 190 3 hours after a meal.  is that ok? I would of thought it would be back to at least 100 by now.
