Diabetes brings about the challenge of balancing blood sugar. It’s like being a tightrope walker. It can be very exhausting since our body can react differently from one day to the other.
One of the scary things about diabetes is hypoglycemia. Some lows are moderate, while others are severe. No matter how severe or moderate it might be, the feeling is the same: horrible!
The 4 Golden Rules Of Hypo Treatment
- Quickly react and treat: it's a time race! As soon as the first symptoms start appearing, treat as quickly as possible
- Don't be fooled by guesswork: test your blood sugar level as soon as you start having symptoms. Frequent lows can decrease normal responses to hypo and lead to hypoglycemia unawareness
- Treat with fast-acting sugar: simple carbohydrates have a quick and easy access to our body allowing to cut the line and quickly enter the blood through a VIP path
- Treat with the right amount of carbohydrates: giving our body only what it needs helps avoid post-treatment roller coasters
