Glucose Management and Hypoglycemic Recovery

Here are some recommended tools to help deal with our hypoglycemia. Hypoglycemia is a condition caused by a very low level of blood sugar (glucose).

Hypoglycemia, also known as low blood sugar, is when blood sugar decreases to below 4 mmol/L.  Dex 4 glucose tablets are my first choice when managing a hypoglycemia episode and gives me a precise amount of glucose.

My Treatment: I take 4 DEX 4 tablets; wait 15 minutes and then retest.

Emergency Contact Information – Medical Alert on Steroids

Road ID – My RoadID is my comfort blanket against the what if. Never had to use it however, good to know that my chronic illnesses, contract information, and who I am is easily accessible to anyone that may need it. RoadId comes in a variety of styles from bracelets, necklace, and as a band attachment of FitBit, Garmin, and Apple watches and smart devices.

RoadID - performance emergency identification. ROAD iD speaks for people when they can't speak for themselves. Check out one of the stories that speaks for ROAD iD, and shows why wearing ID is so important.

 

Much like carrying my insulin, plenty of water while out for a run or my helmet riding – I would never go for a run or a ride without Road ID; even just a quick 5KM around the block. Honestly, I wear it 24/7/365.

Decorative Stickers, and Other Items for your FreeStyle Libre

Looking to make your FreeStyle Libre more stylish. Let’s all agree – white is a bit, well White. Here are a few links to help you pimp up your sensor and scanner. Word of caution – I can not speak to if the stickers reduce how well we can scan the sensors – my other curiosity is if the sensor itself can still disperse heat. However, those that love the stickers swear by them.

Your input is important!

I would love to hear from you. What has worked well, what has not? Send me s message and some link suggestions and I will be sure to add them to the list. ->> Contact me here!

If you have anything you want me to test; I will be sure to give it a thorough testing. After all — we all live with our diabetes 24/7 – great products make for one less thing for users to worry about.
