Type 1 Diabetes

The Rule of 15
Hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar, is when blood glucose levels drop below 70 mg/dl. Symptoms are shakiness or trembling, sweating, weakness, fatigue, dizzy or light headed, headache, hunger, blurred vision or altered speech, nausea, rapid heart beat. Severe symptoms may progress to confusion, seizures or unconsciousness.

All you need to know about Type 1 Diabetes

Why does this happen? Taking too much diabetes


medication, delaying or skipping a meal, too little carbohydrate at a meal, more exercise than usual, drinking alcohol without food.

How to treat Using the Rule of 15


Take your blood glucose. If it is 70 mg/dl or below, consume 15 grams of easy to digest carbohydrate such as: four glucose tablets; 15 gram glucose gel; 1/2 cup fruit juice; 1/2 cup regular soda; five-six hard candies; or three sugar packets. Wait 15 minutes to feel better. Check your blood glucose again, and if still low, take 15 grams of carbohydrate. When your blood glucose starts to go up, wait about an hour and recheck. Eat a hearty snack or next meal. Special Note Resist the urge to over-treat. Don't drink unlimited amounts of sugared drinks to get your blood glucose up, it may go too high and may take days to get it regulated. Alert If three attempts don't work to bring your blood glucose up, call 911. Understanding Hypoglycemia
