Day 2 - Making the low go. Tell us about your favourite way to treat a low. Juice? Glucose tabs? Secret candy stash? What's your favourite thing to indulge in when you are low? What do you find brings your blood sugar up fast without spiking it too high?
Me, I'm a juice girl. If I get it right (aka I actually measure out my juice rather than just guzzling it), I can avoid the spike. Most of the time though I flip into panic mode when I go low and just grab some juice and knock it back, which is why I'm thinking of switching to Glucotabs. I hear very good things about them, plus they can come in a handy little tube, so that's a bonus.
I tend not to follow up with slow-releasing carbs, unless I've really hit rock bottom (and I won't have the slow releasing carbs until I'm over 4). I find otherwise I am way up in the teens/20s later on.
If I'm out and about, I usually have a carton of juice in my bag. I run the risk that one day, it's going to explode all over my bag, but for the moment it will do. I keep lucozade or juice close to hand in my room in case of night time hypos.
Remember; this is just how I treat my hypos, it's not advice ;)
