Quick acting carbohydrates given within 15 minutes of low blood sugar detection

You should be given a quick acting carbohydrate such as glucose within 15 minutes of your low blood sugar being detected; this will help to bring your blood sugar levels back within the normal range. You should also receive long acting carbohydrates as a snack or part of a planned meal to help maintain your blood sugar levels.
