    How to use "Postprandial" in context?

    Most of the literature on postprandial hyperglycemia typically refers to hyperglycemia that develops after a meal or snack. However, there are circumstances in which hyperglycemia may occur at any time after a meal. These include persons with diabetes who take insulin medication or people who have had surgery. Hyperglycemia that occurs after a meal or snack is generally caused by the digestion of carbohydrate and insulin release by the pancreas. Postprandial hyperglycemia usually diminishes after 1 to 2 hours.
