Hey guys, I’ve been trying to eat more healthy. When my blood sugar is low I’ll have a small amount of soda to bring it back up along with some complex carbs. For me it helps a lot to have my sugars come back up quickly and be stabilized by complex carbs. In the past I used to just have a granola bar, but it would take forever for my BG to come back up and my mind would be struggling to meet the demands of work so I started using soda to bring it up quickly.
I’m looking for an alternative to soda that can help bring my blood sugar quickly while meeting the following criteria:
-doesn’t require refrigeration (I’ve got to store it at the office)
I’ve thought about fruit juice, but I believe that most of them need to be refrigerated(I could be wrong). I’m not really sure of good alternatives.
Does anyone know if glucose tablets get into the blood stream as fast as soda?
What do you use to bring up your lows quickly?
Thanks in advance.
