A 2-hour postprandial blood sugar test measures level of glucose in blood exactly 2 hours after eating a meal, timed from the beginning of the meal. 2 hours after a meal, blood sugar has usually gone down in healthy people, but it may still be elevated in people with diabetes. Thus, it is a test of whether an individual may have diabetes, or of whether an individual who has diabetes is successfully controlling their blood glucose.
If you are someone who is dealing with diabetes, you would already be aware that you need to control your blood sugar levels. But post prandial blood sugar test helps you to keep it under check after you have eaten. Your doctor would recommend this test when your blood sugar seems to be either very high or very low. The symptoms include loss of focus, lack of energy and mood swings.
