You can’t always prevent very low blood sugar, but you can prepare for it

Exclamation point icon

Rescue treatment is an important part of diabetes management

If you experience very low blood sugar, you may be too weak or confused to eat or drink anything, or you could choke on food or liquids. If this happens, another person may need to give you rescue treatment. 

It’s important to keep a rescue treatment on hand and that you and the people around you know how to use it. A rapid-acting treatment can help to quickly restore very low blood sugar.

Rescue treatment is one more way you can feel prepared. Rescue treatments are there for you when you need them in an emergency.
