Avoid the Vicious Cycle ( Diabetes )
Don’t overdo it in treating a low blood glucose episode. If you over-treat, you’ll end up in a vicious low/high cycle. Remember the 15 grams/15 minutes rule: Take 15 grams of a fast acting carbohydrate and wait fifteen minutes before retesting. If your levels are still too low, repeat and retest. Good sources of fast-acting carbohydrates include:
Glucose tablets (read packaging for equivalent of 15 grams carb)
Non-diet soda (read packaging)
Smarties candies (3 small rolls)
Sweet Tarts (8 tablets)
Honey (1 tablespoon)
