Hypoglycemia or low blood sugar can affect people with diabetes.
If you take insulin or another blood glucose lowering medication you are at risk for hypoglycemia.
Correcting a low blood sugar episode immediately is important, and pure glucose products are recommended by organizations like the American Diabetes Association to quickly raise your blood sugar into a normal range.
How to raise your blood glucose quickly
The quickest way to raise your blood glucose and treat hypoglycemia is with
d-glucose. Dex4® glucose tablets, Dex4® glucose gel and Dex4® Liquiblast produce the ideal glycemic response by providing the exact sugar (d-glucose) your cells need for energy and quick relief from symptoms of hypoglycemia.
It’s important to treat hypoglycemia quickly because hypoglycemia can get worse and you could pass out. If you pass out, you will need immediate treatment, such as an injection of glucagon or emergency treatment in a hospital.
After you feel better, be sure to eat your regular meals and snacks as planned to keep your blood glucose level up.Please note that candy, cola and juice may contain carbohydrates, but take longer for your body to digest as they contain extra ingredients that need to be broken down before your body gets the exact d-glucose it needs.
Choose Dex4® glucose products for fast, accurate, and convenient choices to treat hypoglycemia!
