A BG of 80 at one or 2 hours after a meal is way too low. A BG of 140-160 at 2
hours after a meal is acceptable (exception is in pregnancy when under 130 is
the target at the 1 hour point), as long as the next BG (before the next meal)
is in target range  for before meal BGs.  Testing 30 minutes after eating is
not recommended.
