Low blood sugars can be a scary part of life with diabetes, but being informed and prepared on how to treat hypoglycemia can make these moments less stressful. Glucagon is the best treatment option for severe hypoglycemia. Historically, glucagon kits were challenging to use because they had to be mixed at the time of use. In recent years, three new, ready-to-use glucagon products came to market, making this important product much easier to use. As of August 2021, 43% of our readers are using these new products.
