What do YOU do when your BS is low and you are not hungry? There have been several occassions when I have found that my BS is low and I need to take in some food but I am not hungry and don't want to eat unnecessary calories. If this happens to you, what do you do to carry you over until the next meal? Sometimes I use this opportunity to drink Orange Juice, which is something I NEVER have because of the sugar content. Milk also makes my BS spike!
I might be answering my own question here but I'm just curious to know what you do in this situation.
I take glucose tablets as well. Dex4 comes in a decent watermelon flavor so the chalky taste is not so abhorrent. It saves on the calories as well.
Yogurt is good!! Unless you're very low....then it's tablets!!
I just keep sachets of sugar around. 1 is about 5 g of sugar and is perfect, and isn't many calories.
Sure beats keeping candy around, which may well get eaten when it's not meant to be.
I've only eveer taken a sachet of sugar when I was low, or starving hungry (maybe twice) with no food in sight....
