When your blood glucose drops below 70 and you need to raise your blood glucose in a hurry, it’s good to have quick carbs ready to go.  Here are some rapid-acting carbohydrates to have on hand in case of an emergency:

  • ½ c of any type of regular juice
  • 5 sugar cubes
  • 1 small box of raisins
  • 6 oz regular soda
  • 3-4 hard candies
  • 3-4 glucose tablets
  • 8 oz skim milk
  • 4 tsp of granulated sugar
