Even though this is my first post, I have been reading your posts for a while, so first and foremost thank you for everyone’s input. Your past comments have helped me tremendously adjust to my new life as a t1.
So my Endo has finally prescribed me insulin, and quite frankly I’m terrified of getting lows. ( And I’m so happy that I have been extremely cautious, as I started with a 1/3 of what she recommended for lantus, and my fasting is now below 100.)
So my question to you is what are your favorite hypo snacks.
I read online mostly glucose tablets, juice, soda and gel tablets, I read here some people mentioning life savers and gummies.
I do not have a huge sweet tooth ( unless my sugar is already through the roof) and try to stay away from junk food. I’m also concerned that with gummies and Skittles I might not have the same self control and prevent over eating them
Also would you mind telling me if these snacks make sense for treating lows:
- a pouch of Apple sauce
- fruit leather
- pretzels (??? That one I’m really not sure)
Thank you so much!
