Hi, I would love to know what foods you use for a hypo. My son is 12 and we use juice poppers and glucose tablets, I would love to know what others use.

  • If someone with diabetes is having a hypo and is conscious, they should initially treat a hypo with 15-20g of fast acting sugary food or drink, such as: 5 glucose tablets. 150 to 200ml of a sugary fizzy drink (eg full sugar cola or lemonade)

  • My family friend used to always have jelly beans on hand for their diabetic daughters hypo attacks

  • You should be able to find enough information in Internet, for example at this website. But ask your GP if you have any doubt. https://www.healthline.com/health/type-1-diabetes-diet#overview1
