Day 2 – Making the low go. Tell us about your favorite way to treat a low. Juice? Glucose tabs? Secret candy stash? What’s your favorite thing to indulge in when you are low? What do you find brings your blood sugar up fast without spiking it too high?
Glucose tablets are the treatment that seems most effective without sending me high. However, I have run out on occasion or not had them with me. In these cases, I’m most likely to grab a sugary soda, which seems to act pretty quickly.
There was a day at work that I was low right before a birthday party. I normally attend these, but skip the cake. That day I was excited to actually have an excuse to indulge that day. Though, being low feels bad…so it makes it harder to enjoy whatever the “treat” is.
