    Hypos

    Hi Ditze blonde I have that problem too but always in the middle of the day at 1pm or 3pm I usually take some lucozade to bring them up but I've recently taken to eating an apple (red) which does the same for me but I can never really say why this happens as it can be because I didn't have a snack (fruit) between breakfast and lunch but somedays it will happen anyway even if I do eat !go figure!!! so sorry I can't be of more help to you but I'd love to see if anyone else has ideas on this

    I use half a small carton of orange juice. Works every time.
    Why are you having hypos now?

    Jelly Babies! Heard Jelly Bavies are low fat and high sugar so gave then a try and now carry then everywhere. Work quickly and less calories than Mars.

    Hi! Try GlucoGel, it tastes horrible but works fast and is good if levels have dropped very low. GlucoGel is only available on prescription so ask your Doctor.

    I swear by jelly babies, 5 jelly babies and my sugar levels are back up where they need to be and find I don't need a carby snack after to prevent levels dropping back down again which I do with Lucazade x

    I use glucotabs. Had a bad experience with lucozade and hate the stuff now! If I carried jelly babies with me all the time, I'd eat them!

    I find 4 or 5 jelly babies do the trick.

    I was having 200ml of Lucozade and 1 slice of toast. But I found that my sugars were sky high at my next meal.

    What's been working for me lately is a slice of toast, 200ml low fat milk and I have a small amount of insulin. My blood sugars are then normal for my next meal!

    hypos are so inconvenient and such an obstruction to dieting!

    3 jelly babies is the new fave of the DSN's around here and no need for anything carby afterwards

    I must admit that I do sometimes feel the need to eat something, like i cant quite control it, but I always bolus the exact amount of carbs over and above the 3 jelly babies.

    I have to put them into the tiny kids lunchbox plastic bags, so i dont eat the pack! you can fit about 5 in them


    get into the 16's by september

    get into the 15's by october

    I just had my first one for ages. I have jelly beans followed by a couple of oatcakes. I find I cannot drink when hypoing so lucozade just dribbles down my chin, most becoming.
