where people touched by diabetes help each other.

just curious what other people keep in their cars for possible reactions. I tried glucose tabs but they go bad in summer heat. Now I use fruit wraps.

Yes it does. That's why I don't leave it in car - it's in purse. As I'm not always in car and I usually have purse with or nearby 😀

I had never heard this before. I have a couple of sample packs in my car in case I found myself without anything on hand. I knew that sugar solution could caramelise in an autoclave (121 C), but I didn't think a car could get so hot. I'll try them out.
