Re: Low blood sugar fix?
I know they usually tell you not to eat anything with fat because it takes longer to bring your blood sugar up, but I have had very good results with peanut butter crackers. There's a brand called Austen that packages them in fours, and one package is 15 g of carbs. They have the added advantage of lasting longer than straight sugar products because of the protein content.
The other thing that works for me is life savers. I picked a flavor that I like well enough to get down, but not so well that I'll be tempted to snack on them. Usually 3-6 work fine.
If your blood sugar is frequently going low, have you looked into changing your insulin or oral medication routine? Perhaps a different regimen would help prevent the frequent lows?
Another option, if you're on insulin, is an insulin pump. It works well for me, not only eliminating the frequent lows (and rebound highs) but also helping me lose weight because I'm able to keep my levels much more even with half the insulin, and I don't have to constantly treat lows anymore.
