Question 1: I went to a drug store today and saw RED. Their store-brand 15-gram emergency glucose gels were $3.99 or three for $10.00. Hello?!? Am I missing something? Or are these gels being sold for ridiculously high prices?
I'd love to hear what people are packing to treat lows. I'm trying to stay away from things I might...ahem...like well enough to snack on when I don't NEED them, you know? What do you suggest that's not too delicious or tempting, but will get the job done on an emergency basis?
I've only had three serious hypos in my life, and all three were in the past seven months, so I'm kind of a newbie to treating serious lows (30's to 50's, like that.)
Question 2: How do you resist the urge to over-treat and end up in the 300's?! After my lows, I've wanted to eat like a hippo -- for three days.
