Gatorade to treat a low

Have any of you tried Gatorade for a low? I have found when I get a low at night I will treat it but due to the delays I am listening to my dexcom squawk for almost 1/2 hour afterwards keeping my wife awake.When I treat a low with some Gatorade this goes down to about 10 minutes, I suspect it has something to due with the replenishing electolite ingredients.Anyway until then I never touched the stuff, now I keep some in the fridge for just in case.See More
