Postprandial hyperglycaemia

Clinical relevance of assessing and reducing postprandial hyperglycaemia


Contributions of fasting and postprandial glucose to overall hyperglycaemia of type 2 diabetic patients
Postprandial glucose levels predominantly contribute to glycaemic fluctuations

Post challenge glucose and glycaemic spikes more strongly associated with atherosclerosis than fasting glucose or HbA1c
HbA1c alone does not provide a comprehensive assessment of the risk associated with glycaemic level impact on atherosclerosis

Post challenge glucose concentration and coronary heart disease
Risk of fatal coronary heart disease increases with rise in postprandial glucose

Guidelines

“Self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) should be considered because it is currently the most practical method for monitoring post meal glycaemia.”
