Question Dr. wants me to monitor 10 yr old son & I have ?'s

A couple of months ago I was told his fasting blood sugar was low (70 while fasting). Then last week another dr did blood work & called me to say it was high & I needed to monitor him. I know nothing about blood sugar levels. If someone could please help me, I'd so appreciate it. He is not over weight, if anything under weight.

Day 1
Fasting 108
1 hr after eating 72
2 hr after eating 90

Day 2
Fasting 118
1 hr after eating 148
2 hr after eating 253
3 hr after eating 80

before dinner 90
1 hr 163
2 hr 146
He was playing hard & doing a lot of running.

I called like they said, but didn't tell me anything but I could take him to ER if I felt he need to go. What am I looking at? Can blood sugar drop from 253 to 80 in 1 hr? Thanks in advance for any advice!
