    you are not suposed to use chocolate to treat lows cuz it has fat and that slows down the sugar from working. Things with just sugar work faster:)

    Ha! My favorite thing too is fruit punch glucose tabs! Other than that it's jolly ranchers (which I chew) or sweet tarts, smarties, sprees. Those I find to act quickest - which I am always in for, cause I feel terrible when I'm low. After that, usually crackers and p/b, or appels and p/b, or a pbandj sandwich. Perty much something with peanut butter! lol!

    Well Im guessin this site is American because I cant get fruit punch flavour tablets over here. I eat what ever I can get my hands on usually wih orange glucose tablets. Ive always been told to follow up my tablets with some solid carbs so I eat toast after! :D

    I use lifesavers, fruit snacks, marshmallows, jolly ranchers, and I love the fruit punch and the watermelon flavored glucose tabs!

    I have apple juice. I don't want anything too tempting, because I'm still constantly hungry. Apple juice doesn't tempt me because it was making me throw up during the months of onset.

    My fav is the grape or fruit punch tabs. I also like the 100 cal packs for those inbetween meal snacks. The best thing ever made for diabetics. Quanity is limited to 100cal, average grams of carbs is 15-19, and they taste like the real thing.

    If i had to choose it would be... caprisuns, gummi bears, skittles, nerds, orange flavored glucose tabs, strawberry kiwi snapples (best thing in the world) and ather stuff like that... but when i go low i go really low like 20 ar when the machine just says LO and i am always still functioning so it kills me to drink and eat cause it makes me dizzy when i go back up
