Low Blood Sugar (Hypoglycemia) Treatment
Call 911 if:
- A person who has low blood sugar not related to diabetes loses consciousness.
1. Raise Blood Sugar Level
Give the person a high-sugar food such as:
- ½ cup fruit juice
- 5 hard candies
- 3 glucose tablets
Then follow with a more substantial food like a sandwich that offers protein, fat, and complex carbohydrates.
2. Follow Up
- If non-diabetic hypoglycemia is recurrent, see a health care provider. The health care provider will do tests to help determine the cause.
