This is a photo of the glucose tablets I bought from the oldest pharmacy in Europe, which is in Dubrovnik, Croatia.
I packed more glucose tabs than I thought I would need for our 2+ week trip to Europe, but by the 4th day I was already running low. I doubted I would be able to find any in Europe-- I didn't know what they were called, and it's not a common term that you would expect most people to know. We took a tour of the oldest pharmacy, and then realized that it is still in service. We waited in line and I asked the pharmacist, "Do you have glucose?" She didn't recognize the word, so I said, "sugar?" My husband then pointed to me and said, "diabetes." The pharmacist pointed to what looked like a tubes of candy on a little stand beside the cash register and said, "When sugar in blood is low, you eat this to bring up." I said, "YES! That's what I'm looking for!" She was nice enough to let us pay for them with Euros; I think that the pharmacy was only supposed to take kuna, which is the Croatian currency.
We got some more glucose tablets in Florence, Italy, where they call them "energy tablets." They worked really well! Here's a picture...
I think I will start collecting glucose tablets from every country I visit. :)
