Glucose tablets (14)
Treatment for low blood sugar with glucose tablets or glucose drinks at home
Follow these steps if your blood sugar is less than 4mmol/L or you have hypo symptoms:
Have a sugary drink or snack-- try something like a small glass of non-diet fizzy drink or fruit juice, a small handful of sweets, or four or five dextrose tablets.
Test your blood sugar after 10-15 minutes-- if it's 4mmol or above and you feel better, move on to step 3. If it's still below 4mmol, treat again with a sugary drink or snack and take another reading in 10-15 minutes.
Eat your main meal (containing carbohydrate) if you're about to have it or have a carbohydrate-containing snack-- this could be a slice of toast with spread, a couple of biscuits or a glass of milk.
