In this case, after consuming a load of sugar (in a soda or candy bar), your blood sugar levels will be monitored over three hours. Your goal is to be less than 180 mg/dl in the first hour after eating, less than 165 after two hours, and less than 145 after three hours. If not, your doctor will talk to you about the first line of treatment - controlling blood sugar through diet and exercise. If that doesn't work, she may consider prescribing diabetes drugs for you.
