What is the highest "acceptable" blood sugar peak?
After you eat a meal, how high should your blood sugar go? Even if it returns to "normal" levels within 2 hours, what is the highest peak that is OK? Is anything OK as long as it returns to normal? My daughter is having peaks in the 225-250 range on a fairly regular basis (she is 4 and of normal weight), but her bg does usually come down within 2-3 hours.
Additional Details
I should add that she does not have a diagnosis of diabetes and that all of these readings are with a home meter. She has seen an endocrinologist who is not concerned because there are no documented venous blood draws over 200.

I had a good friend that worked in dietary field, and she saw blood sugar levels over 1000, and that was for a severly overweight diabetic, I work in 911 and have seen people over 500. so as long as she is under that, number it is good, but to make sure check with pediatrican, coudl be early signs of juvenile diabetes or something else....

Her peaks after meals of 225-250 is too high. You need to get her back to the endrocrinologist. A "normal" blood sugar after meals is about 120.
Even though her blood sugar returns to normal after a couple hours, those high blood sugars can cause injuries to her internal organs. She is only 4 years old. You may want to consider taking her to a different doctor/endrocrinologist. Those after meal levels are far from normal or acceptable.

I would have a doctor do a fasting blood sugar test. In this test you don't eat anything after 9:00pm. They will draw blood around 7:30- 8:00 am. If her B.S. is less than 140 I don't think you nave anything to worry about.. I have T-2 adult onset, and have had post meal Sugar counts as high as 312. And three hrs. later I was at 123. Your daughter's condition could be caused by what she eats. Try small meal's 4 to 5 times a day. If a doctor isn't worried ,there is probably a good reason.

It differs a lot for everyone. But The older my father got the higher his comfort range went, which was harder to control as he would be from 250-320 during the day and at night stat heading down like 180-200, we had to make sure he was that high, why? because by morning he was no more than 60 sometime lower than 30 and almost in a comma.
i have had working friends who were very large and when they found out and took the firs tblood sugar test they wer in the 560 range.
but they were huge, like 6 ft. -4 and about 370 lbs, he went on a extreme diet imediaitly and lost 120 lbs, and got off the needle, but still tak s the pill.
If he would quit drining it would get more under control for sure. And the eating habbits are more like a rabbit than a Cow.

Yes 250 is high if you are under 60 years old for sure,
You want to keep it betwwen 90-150 just above normal levels.
Eating and modrate exercise, and 3 blood checks with you kit each day for sure.
The machines now days are very fast.

hang in there ok?

Those readings are to high. Get a Doctor who cares about your daughter and listens to you.

not acceptable but over 600 you risk going into a glycemic shock as if you go bellow 70

For a non diabetic person a post meal reading is always no more that 110mg/dl no matter how much the person has to eat. A reading over that is an indication of diabetes or pre-diabetes condition. The best thing to do see a doctor for a glucose tolerance test.

I suggest you get a second opinion or schedule her to see a pediatric endocrinologist. My son was 4 when he was diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes and those numbers are still not normal. Has she had an Hemoglobin A1C? If not, that would give a more accurate picture of whats going on. They can also hook her up to a monitor that could be monitored for 3 days which takes readings every so many minutes. Good luck and keep monitoring her.

Well i am diabetic and it should not go that hi..Mine runs between 190 and 335 and that is way to hi..Also it depends on what she is eating

i believe that a fasting blood sugar test should be obtained, and there has to be several readings before she could actually be diagnosed as a "diabetic". just watch for signs and symptoms of hyperglycemia(high blood sugar) increased thirst, increased urination, increrased hunger, fatigue, dry mouth, blurred vision, change in mental status.
