where people touched by diabetes help each other.

Am a type 1 diabetic. Been carb counting for a few months now. I have more stable readings doing this but have a few highs from hypos. What do people recommend to bring their sugars up reasonably??

1 or 2 airheads will do the trick.

I would recommend to quickly discover how much one glucose tab will raise you BS in 15min. Then u can use that amount to work backwards when you want to hit a target at any time of day.

Glucose tablets don't always do something, that's why I stopped using it all the time

Capri sun works for me, basically any juice/soda will work in a bind. Just know the carbs to ounces ratio. That's what works for me at least

They say have 15 carbs but that doesn't do a thing for me but when I have a tad more, sugars go high. Can't win really

That's the general rule of thumb. But General isn't necessarily what works for everything, type 1 22yrs & I still have moments struggling to find the right balance any given day
