Answers

No, my friend, a blood sugar (glucose) reading of 137 mg/dL is absolutely perfect for a non-diabetic reading.

Two hours post-prandial (after eating) and a non-diabetic's blood sugar level would not normally rise above 140 mg/dL. I say normally as there are occasions when the number could go higher, such as if you have an underlying infection, you are going through a period of extreme stress, or you are taking certain types of medications which are known to cause rises in blood glucose levels. These medications include those prescribed for the treatment of asthma, and treatments for other types of infection.

For a diabetic it's low so for a normal slightly high if it continues go talk to a doctor

not really. it's common to go up a bit after eating.

test it in the morning before you eat anything. 90-125 is normal. yours isn't bad after eating

If you're diabetic, you're on target. The American Association of Diabetic Endocrinologists recommends that diabetics stay under 140 mg/dL 1-2 hours after a meal. If you're non-diabetic, you're still technically in the normal range, but I'd say you're pushing the high end and may want to begin seeing a doctor regularly for diabetes checks.
