Handling hypos

Here's what you should do if you feel like you might be having a hypo.

Stop whatever you are doing, right away.
If you are with people, tell them what is happening.
Test your blood glucose (sugar).
Eat or drink some fast-acting carbohydrate.
Sit down until you feel better. After 15 minutes, test your blood glucose (sugar) again. If it's still low, eat a bit more fast-acting carbohydrate
Some people may then need to eat some slow-acting carbohydrate. Your doctor or nurse will tell you what to do.
