Treat lows fast with these sources of sugar

By Kelly Rawlings , , ,

Blood glucose lows (hypoglycemia) can come on fast, so you’ll want to be prepared to treat immediately—and before you do something dangerous such as drive while low. People with type 1 diabetes frequently have mild lows, while people with type 2 diabetes can also develop hypoglycemia if they take insulin or sulfonylureas. The following products are specifically designed to provide glucose for lows. These products are fat free, which may help speed the absorption of sugar, and the serving sizes are precise, so you’ll know exactly how many carbohydrate grams you’ve swallowed. In addition to the name-brand products listed below, lower-priced yet equally effective store brands are also available.
