If your recent Hb1Ac test reading comes higher than your meter reading than chances are your post meal 3 and 4 and 5 hours number are much higher than your post meal 1 or 2 hours number. If you eat large meals this will help in better control. If you are taking fast acting insulin find your peak and see you are not dipping low within your peak and getting rescued by your body. In my opinion for all newly diagnosed post meal 3 , 4 and 5 hours testing should be standard till they have better glucose control.
