Q: How many tablets does it take to restore natural blood sugar levels?
A: There isn't a clear-cut answer, so discuss it with your doctor. Each tablet contains a precise dosage of glucose (4 grams.) The ADA recommends that a person take approximately 15g of glucose if there is a lowering in blood sugar. If your blood sugar level is 50mg or less, increase the dose to 20g. If after 15 minutes, the levels don't balance out, repeat the process.

Q: How long before the tablets begin working?
A: It usually takes a few minutes. Be sure to discuss how much you take with your doctor.

Q: Do they contain fat, sodium, or caffeine?
A: No.

Q: Are they kosher?
A: No, but they do not contain animal products.

Q: Is Dex4® gluten-free?
A: Yes, all FDA tests have shown Dex4® products to be gluten-free.

Q: Why don't I see an expiration date on the package?
A: Glucose is a sugar, and it has no expiration date. The tablets may harden with time, but will remain just as effective.

Q: Where should I store my tablets?
A: Part of what makes Dex4® so great is convenience. You can store Dex4® in your desk, in your pocket or purse, and most anywhere else. Most medical professionals recommend that people carry some form of glucose with them in case of lowered blood sugar.

Q: What is dextrose?
A: Dextrose is short for D-Glucose. It is a simple sugar and one of the most important carbohydrates. It is a source of energy for both animals and plants.
