Wait 10 to 15 minutes after eating the quick-sugar food. If your blood sugar is still below 70 mg/dL, eat another quick-sugar food.
If your blood sugar continues to be below 70 mg/dL or you are getting more sleepy and less alert, call 911 or other emergency services immediately. If possible, have someone stay with you until your blood sugar is above 70 mg/dL or until emergency help arrives.
When your blood sugar is above 70 mg/dL, eat a regular meal or a snack (such as a peanut butter sandwich). Do not take your diabetes pills or insulin until your blood sugar is back to normal.
