hours after that first bite of food. They should do it for like 7
days. Then pen down the time and the
blood sugar number. Pen down what they
ate, portion sizes and
the amount of carbs.
Think about what they think might affect your blood sugar levels and
write it down.

sugar level under 180 mg/dL, 1
to 2 hours after a meal. However, it better to speak with your
physician first about the sugar level that should be your target after
meal.
