My mom is diabetic. About 2.5 hours after dinner she is shaking, has the chills, and is vomiting. I checked her blood sugar and it's 127.

127 is near normal. Something else might be going on here.

Any blood sugar reading below 70 is too low. Two hours after a meal it should be 140 or below.

Sounds like some sort of intestinal upset with fever. Not a doctor, but those symptoms sometimes accompany a flu.
