Carmel, CA Diabetics Are Better Off Popping A Glucose Tablet Than Eating When Suffering From An Episode Of Hypoglycemia

by Richard Kuehn on 03/07/17

Researchers have found that diabetics experiencing an episode of hypoglycemia will feel better faster if they pop a glucose tablet rather than eating.  Published in the Emergency Medicine Journal, scientists looked at diabetics suffering from 700 different episodes of hypoglycemia with symptoms such as shaking or sweating.  Those symptoms were much more likely to go away within 15 minutes when glucose tablets were taken compared with orange juice, jelly beans, candy, table sugar or milk.
