How long after a meal should you check your blood glucose if you’re monitoring for pre-diabetes?

Test your blood glucose two hours after the start of your meal. Ideally, the blood glucose should be less than 140 mg/dl. If you seldom meet this goal, have a discussion with your doctor about a change in the treatment plan. You may need to exercise more or work with a registered dietitian to modify the carbohydrate content of your meals.
