Ahhh! I love this post! As much as the lows really suck, it's a little snipit of time in which I feel like I can eat anything sweet that I want to!
For the past 4 years, I've been using those awful glucose tablets (orange flavored) to treat the lows. Never a favorite, but they do work really really quickly and only have a few calories. However, over the past month or so, I've been using Life Savers! Talk about a LIFE SAVER!! Thanks to Lyrecha from Managing the Sweetness Within for the amazing suggestion! I feel like the Life Saver candy has given me a whole new perspective on low blood sugars. Like last night, I was at 43 just before bed- ate 6 Life Savers and it was like a little delicious treat! Plus, they fit nicely in my BG monitor case so I always have them with me.
Other favorites to treat low blood sugar.......AHHHH...CHOCOLATE MILK! Love it love it love it and it works really quickly. I've also been known to scarf down a few oyster crackers- not the best choice...but delicious!
