Thread: spotted glucose tabs

  1. #1

    Default spotted glucose tabs

    last month Ashleigh went low at her endocrinologist appointment, they gave her grape flavored glucose tabs from walgreens. But we had low supplies with us, so she didn't open it until a couple days ago. When she opened them she noticed they had brown spots on them. We've never had walgreen glucose tabs. Are they supposed to look like this? or should we not chance it and toss them? I told her not to use them until we find out for sure. They all have spots, though some tabs have darker spots.The ones toward the bottom are lighter spotted

    I think the spots mean air somehow got into the container. Was the container sealed in packaging when you got it?

    yeah some other people suggested moisture or air got to it. I can't remember if it was sealed. I'll have to ask Ashleigh. She opened them on Sunday when she was out with her boyfriend.
