Dr. Amish Parikh MD, FRCPC Endocrinologist Post Prandial Glucose

Postprandial means after a meal, and postprandial glucose is the elevation of glucose after we’ve eaten. When we digest food, it goes in the blood, and the first thing we have to do is to store it in our cells. Normally, after we eat our glucose goes up for an hour or two and then slowly comes back to where it’s normal because of the action of insulin. However, if people have diabetes and it’s not very well controlled, the glucose rises after the meal and can stay higher for a longer period of time. This is known as postprandial hyperglycemia.



How To Avoid Hypoglycemia in Type 1 and 2 Diabetes

Hypoglycemia is when there's not enough sugar or glucose in the blood And glucose is a source of energy for many of our organs, the muscles, the heart, but particularly the brain. So it causes a series of symptoms when people have hypoglycemia and therefore we try to avoid that.
