Day 2 – Making the low go. Tell us about your favorite way to treat a low. Juice? Glucose tabs? Secret candy stash? What’s your favorite thing to indulge in when you are low? What do you find brings your blood sugar up fast without spiking it too high?
The best thing I've found to treat my lows is this . . .
A Mott's for Tots Strawberry Banana juice box. It has 13 grams of carbohydrate - pre-measured to make treating easy! It is 47% juice mixed with purified water and some added vitamin C, so it's quite healthy. It tastes really good. And with happy little strawberries and bananas smiling at me, how can I help but feel better??
But my favorite thing I've found to treat my lows is this . . .
Chocolate frosting!!! It's almost impossible to measure out. It almost always causes me to over-treat. There is absolutely nothing healthy about it. But my oh my, it tastes GOOD!!! And when I'm very very low and I need something to spike me up fast, I'll allow myself to indulge in a small spoonful.
