  • Blood Glucose Tablets Buying Guide

    Keep diabetes from running your life. Learn which glucose tablets may be right for you and how they can help you feel better.

  • Everyone with diabetes occasionally experiences blood sugar “lows,” also known as hypoglycemic episodes. While eating a bit of candy or drinking juice may help, glucose tablets are one of the quickest, easiest ways to raise your blood sugar levels and boost your energy. You’ll feel better almost immediately because it’s easier for your body to process glucose, rather than having to turn fructose or sugar.

    Keep glucose tablets in your purse, pocket, car and desk so they’re easily accessible when you need them. And remember to test your blood sugar about 30 minutes after eating carbohydrates to make sure you are returning to normal blood sugar levels.

    Tips for Buying Blood Glucose Tablets

    1. Size and portability of tablets. Glucose tablets come in a variety of bottle sizes and packaging. You may want to have a large bottle at home, plus on-the-go tubes for your purse, gym bag or car.
    2. Amount of carbohydrates in the glucose tablet. Read the package label to see how many grams of carbohydrates are in each glucose tablet, so you know exactly what you’re getting. The average is 4-5 grams of fast-acting carbs (glucose) per tablet, and experts recommend getting 15-20 grams to help correct a blood sugar low. Some glucose tablets are conveniently packaged to give you exactly the 15 grams of carbs you need.
    3. Flavors. Glucose tablets come in an assortment of flavors and many taste similar to a Sweet Tart or Smartie. Choose from fruit punch, orange and others — or get them all since variety is the spice of life.
    4. No added ingredients. Read labels carefully to make sure your glucose tablets don’t have any extras you hadn’t counted on, like gluten, sodium or caffeine.
