It's not impossible for the cereal to raise his blood sugar that high, but it isn't typical. Usually non-diabetics stay under 120. It might bear having an A1C test done by his doctor to see the average blood sugars for a couple months.

Your son is prone to type 2 diabetes but unless very weird stuff starts to happen I wouldn't worry about him getting type 1.
