Community Q&A: Diabetic Patients’ Questions and Answers

Is it okay to get a post meal glucose peak of about 180mg/dl in a non-diabetic person if at the same time PP 2 hours comes down below 140 mg/dl?

In a non-diabetic person, it’s generally considered normal to have a temporary post-meal glucose spike (often referred to as postprandial or PP glucose) after eating. A post-meal glucose level of 180 mg/dL, while higher than normal levels, may not necessarily be a cause for concern if it returns to a normal range (usually below 140 mg/dL) within 2 hours after eating.

However, it’s essential to consider various factors when interpreting blood glucose levels, including individual variability and the specific circumstances of the meal. If this is an isolated occurrence and your glucose levels return to normal relatively quickly, it may not be a cause for worry.

That said, if you consistently experience high post-meal glucose levels or if your levels remain elevated for an extended period, it’s a good idea to consult with a healthcare provider for further evaluation. Monitoring your glucose levels and discussing them with a healthcare professional can help determine if any underlying issues need attention, even in non-diabetic individuals.
