I am being investigated for food intolerance which may be compounding my glucose control This approach involves a very restricted diet for a few weeks. Sugar is one of the things not allowed, I was wondering if anyone had advice on treating a hypo naturally??? My usual choice is orange juice or jellies unfortunately citrus fruits are also not recommended. Thanks

Glucose Juice from Boots or Amazon are my choice as they are in small, easy to carry bottles, and are very effective in dealing with hypo's. I think they are basically water with glucose and fruit flavouring. Each bottle is valued at 1.5 portions carbohydrate.
