Hi!

I am trying to figure out what the glucose level for a person would be after 6 hours based on the below listed data:

Time                Glucose ml/Liter
0.5                               180
1.0                               195
1.5                               230
2.0                               245
2.5                               235
3.0                               225
4.0                               200
6.0                               ???

TIA

180 would be a good guess.
There is math for a better guess but everything requires some assumptions.
Lacking other information, I would try fitting a quadratic curve to the data.

Here are two possibilities (and there are many more unless you are a doctor/nurse/PA):
