Beyond Type 2’s Hypoglycemia Chart


Hypoglycemia and severe hypoglycemia are two things against which all people with diabetes should be vigilant.

It is essential for people with diabetes—and their loved ones/caregivers—to be aware of the warning signs and symptoms of hypoglycemia and severe hypoglycemia.

Moreover, knowing how to administer prescription glucagon to people experiencing acute hypoglycemia is essential, as the glucagon can promptly elevate blood-sugar levels and prevent further issues.

Advancements in technology have led to the development of user-friendly glucagon-delivery systems, making it easier for people to administer the medication when needed.

Check out this hypoglycemia chart to get a sense of when you have hypoglycemia and severe hypoglycemia and what you or a caregiver should do about it.
