Good evening Olivia, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Indeed, logically, fasting blood sugar levels should be lower than blood sugar levels 2 hours after eating because the incoming food should increase blood sugar levels. And indeed, some sources are still debating about this condition.


Among those who say that this is a natural condition is because by fasting, when the body finally gets stimulation from the incoming food, the body becomes excessively secreting the hormone insulin due to a sudden increase in blood sugar levels after it was empty. Usually after a while, blood sugar levels will stabilize and will continue to stabilize when not fasting. Especially in your case, where the recommended fast is 8 hours, but you fasted 9.5 hours. Especially if the food choices are low-sugar and low-carbohydrate foods such as vegetables. So when you start eating, the body becomes "shocked" and secretes more insulin than it should, which makes blood sugar levels even lower.


Then among the opinions that think this is a sign of a serious illness is because the body should not be "surprised" and that the body should be able to properly control the level of sugar in it at any time, fasting or not. And the fact that the body is starting to be overwhelmed with regulating its hormones could be an early sign of diabetes.


So in conclusion for you, although there are two opinions, it would be better if you consult an internal medicine specialist regarding your results. Your doctor may order a more controlled re-examination. Meanwhile, exercise regularly, maintain an ideal body weight, avoid too many sweet foods and avoid stress. I hope you and your family are always healthy.


That's all, hope it helps.
