How long does it take for your blood-sugar to go back to normal after eating?
Like, if I eat oatmeal... a couple hours?

"Normal" is considered to be 2-3 hours -- NO MATTER WHAT YOU EAT.

This is what the Glucose Tolerance Test measures. First, the doctor takes a "baseline" glucose reading. THEN, you are asked to drink a liquid of pure glucose and water, sweet to the point of being sickening. Then, they take more glucose readings over the next 3-4 hours.

These readings allow the doctor to draw a GRAPH, showing your body's response to glucose. In ALL cases, you body will show a sudden "spike" in the blood sugar level almost immediately after you drink the fluid. That spike must drop down to normal (less than 120) after about three hours.

if the blood sugar level drops to less than 120, then you are OK - NOT diabetic. if the reading goes high and STAY high (more than 150) after three hours, then you are diabetic, and need to start treatment IMMEDIATELY.

if you do not have diabetes, it takes between 2-4 hours.

There is a test called oral glucose tolerance test. you are given a large amount of glucose and your blood sugar is measured at 2 and 4 hour periods. the time it takes to return to normal is how diabetes is diagnosed.

Nights like this cause me to question whether or not participating in this forum is of help to people. You have been offered a rather wide range of responses none of which I believe is to the point. You do not state that you are a diabetic but the basic principle would be the same whether you are or not. It is in fact normal for you blood glucose to rise after eating. The glucose level typically peaks at approximately 2 hours after eating although there will be some individual variation and some variation from day to day. A non-diabetic's 2 hour postprandial (after eating) glucose typically does not exceed 140 mg/dL or 7.8 mmol/L. A diabetic's goal is similar to this but not necessarily identical. The physician will often allow for slightly higher readings to avoid excessive hypoglycemia. If I may be of further assistance please let me know. I wish you the very best of health and in all things may God bless. JR
