    Blood sugars do rise for hours after meals particularly if:

    You have delayed stomach emptying. (You will usually have other complications too if you have this).
    You eat a lot of protein eg steaks can take 10 hours to digest.
    You eat a lot of fat with the carbs you eat. Eg Pizza takes 8 hours to digest.
    You eat late and night and then go to bed.

    The only way to know is to check your blood sugar every 2 hours after each meal.
