How should i bring up my low blood sugar?
my doctor has told me that my blood sugar is a little low and to eat more. what type of things should i eat?

Tim Br
Whole grain carbohydrates and vegetables.

Loris Ann
If your sugars are too low, then you need to cut back on your insulin, not eat more. Liquids will bring it up quicker that solids, a couple swings of Coke does it for me.

Calli S
well eat things with more carbs. but to get a fast reaction drink non diet items. Buyt u really should tal to ur doctors about this...
this is a very serious disease and u don't want to die.

First, if you are taking insulin the Dr. needs to make some changes in your insulin dose. If you are on pills, you might need a change. However, to bring up your blood sugar you should buy glucose tablets. Depending how low your sugar is depends on the amount of tablets you need. I take 4 and in works for me. After taking the tablets wait for 15 minutes and do a repeat blood sugar. If it is still low do a repeat of the same thing. However you should consult your Dr. Drinking 1/2 cup orange juice should bring it up about 40 points on the average. Really consider talking about this to someone.

fruit oarnges are best 100% fruit juices but you aslo need carbs to make them stay up

fruits, carbohydrate rich foods, glucose tablets or biscuits will increase your blood sugar. If you want to increase your sugar without increasing your weight try fruits.

You really should check with your doctor to see what he recommends. As a diabetic, I keep packages of fruit chews with me in case of a hypoglycemic episodes. The fruit chews I get have about 23 carbohydrates per package but are only 90 calories. Fruit juices will bring blood sugars up, but you still have to check carbohydrate content. I also like the Nutrigrain cereal bars for a quick pickup.

Many Blessings,

Eat more of everything.

If you are a diabetic, eat something like fruit or juice. Something healthy with a good amount of sugar in it.

If you are hypoglycemic, you need to eat smaller meals several times a day and eat whole grains, vegetables, fruits, etc... complex carbohydrates.

Bread will bring it up. Pops

Please see a dietitian and learn all about carbs and carb counting.
What you should eat all depends upon how low your sugar is.
I keep regular soda around for times when i am very low.That way I don't have to think about what to do. A low sugar can cloud your mind and decisions can be difficult.
When i am just a bit low, I choose a fruit or a complex carb with protein.

drink and eat oranges, and orange juice
it brings your sugar up
