Hi
Welcome to
Health care Magic

generally after a meal of high carbohydrate diet, blood glucose level be increased in normal persons also. this is your case..
to rule out diabetes you need to get your fasting blood glucose and post prandial glucose level...

My 12 year old daughter had a fasting blood sugar of 102 but the doctor said that it wasn t anything to worry about and that she would check again next year. My daughter was very nervous when she was getting her blood drawn, could this be why her blood sugar level was higher than normal?
