Today they took blood again to check my liver enzymes and other basic labs. They commented again that my blood sugar was "a little high". All we had in the house was kid cereal because I haven't felt like shopping, so I had a bowl of cereal before leaving. I had orange juice while they were trying for a half hour to get a good iv site, too. I'm not really surprised that it was elevated if they ran it as a fasting sugar again. My husband took the call and didn't ask what the level was, and I'm assuming it wasn't that bad if they didn't ask me to come back in for another test.
Anyways - what is considered an average blood sugar after a meal? I have a family history of diabetes, so I definitely want to keep an eye on it if it is an issue. I always get over a liter of D5W, which is 5% dextrose in water. I'm there for a long time, so I also have eaten lunch before the draw. When I go in next, I'm going to make sure that they run the test as a non-fasting blood sugar.
