Low blood sugar is not something that happens to my daughter too often, but it’s one of those things that when it happens you damn well better be prepared. Our on-the-go low treatment plan pretty much always includes LEVEL Life Glucose Gel.
LEVEL Life Glucose Gels come in this cool easy to carry squeeze pack that contains 15g of fast acting glucose. We’ve treated lows just about every way imaginable and these gels raise her blood sugar quickly and without the risk of over treatment because it is perfectly portioned out. I’ve seen Z drink what she thought was 4 ounces of juice and check her blood sugar fifteen minutes later and it has shot up to almost 300. These take out all the guessing and I feel so much better knowing that she’s treating her lows in a responsible manner if I’m not around.
She keeps them in her locker at school just in case.
We actually keep them everywhere: in my purse, in the car, in our nightstands, in her backpack. Our motto is it is better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.
The gel flavors are mandarin orange, strawberry banana, vanilla, and caramel and Z enjoys them all equally which is some sort of flavor miracle.
LEVEL Life hooked Z up with some of her favorite gels as well as their new line of Bars and Shakes that are precisely formulated snacks that fight hunger, support healthy blood sugar, and are low glycemic and gluten free. They are packed with protein and fiber and low in carbs and sugar. There was another box of caramel chocolatey peanut protein bars that did not get to attend the photo shoot due to the fact they were too damn delicious. (I tried one in the name of research, Z ate one, and I think her brother ate the other two. He can’t be trusted around snacks.)
