    155 too high?

    Is a glucose reading of 155 too high for 3 hours after eating? I'm pre diabetic and I took this reading about 3 hours after eating.

    If you ate 1/2 dozen cupcakes with an inch of frosting, that would probably be understandable. If you ate grilled chicken and a salad, that would be disconcerting. What is your fasting blood sugar level normally?

    I had a hot dog with french fries. My fasting glucose is 103.

    I would discuss this with your doctor. I think the standard wisdom is that blood sugar should be under 140 2-3 hours after eating, so yes, your reading might be considered on the high side.

    I would think you need to eliminate those 2 foods from your diet. A fasting glucose of 103 is concerning enough to change your diet pretty dramatically. You should see your doctor about this.

    Would I still be considered pre -diabetes with the 155 reading? According to a diabetic website I was reading they say 140-200 glucose readings without fasting is considered pre- diabetes. Is this correct?

    According to the lab at my doctor's, 70-100 fasting is normal. Up to 140, 2 hours after eating, is normal. Based on that, yes, you would be flirting with diabetes and need to see your physician in order to be monitored and learn about appropriate foods.

    I also agree you should speak to your doctor. S/he may want to do further testing. There is a test called HbA1c that can give an idea of how your blood sugars have run over the last couple of months and help better determine if you've crossed the diabetic/prediabetic line. At the very least, some sort of further monitoring seems in order.
