Postprandial blood sugar test is used to evaluate the amount of glucose in the body after 2 hours of eating. The primary job of this test is to how the body responds to starch and sugar after you eat. When the food gets digested, blood sugar and blood glucose level increase rapidly. After two hours of having a meal, if insulin and glucose level are high, it indicates that you may have diabetes. After two hours the glucose and insulin level must get back to the average level.
Glucose is the primary source of energy of all the cells in the body. It is building block for carbohydrates. Carbohydrates can be found in rice, fruit, bread, cereals, etc. In diabetes, carbohydrates are converted into glucose due to which glucose level increases in the blood.
