Preparing for severe low blood sugar may protect moments like this
Sometimes you might miss a meal, exercise too much, or not eat enough food for the amount of insulin you’ve taken. Any of these situations can lead to low blood sugar, also called hypoglycemia.
If not treated quickly, mild or moderate low blood sugar can become severe. In these cases, you may be physically unable to eat or drink a rapid acting source of glucose or you may lose consciousness. You will need a Glucagon injection immediately—and a friend, family member, or coworker may need to give it to you.
Glucagon is a treatment for very low blood sugar (severe hypoglycemia) which may occur in patients with diabetes. Symptoms include disorientation, unconsciousness, and seizures or convulsions.
Warning: You may be in a coma from severe hyperglycemia (very high blood sugar) rather than hypoglycemia (very low blood sugar). In such a case, you will not respond to Glucagon and require immediate medical attention.
Treating severe low blood sugar
A key to managing an episode of severe low blood sugar (severe hypoglycemia) is to be prepared. You and anyone who may need to help you (such as a friend, family member, or co-worker) with severe low blood sugar treatment should know how to use Glucagon and have it within reach before an emergency arises.
