Tips for Managing Blood Sugar Below 70 mg/dL

Consume a fast-acting source of glucose, such as glucose tablets, gel, or a sugary beverage (about 15 grams of carbohydrates).

Check your blood sugar to confirm it has returned to a safe range after treatment.

Recognize the factors that led to low blood sugar, such as too much insulin or medication, skipped meals, or vigorous exercise.

Always have fast-acting glucose sources with you, to treat hypoglycemia promptly.

Consume regular, balanced meals and snacks to prevent low blood sugar episodes. Monitor carbohydrate intake and meal timing.

Be mindful of physical activity's impact on blood sugar.

Adjust food or medication as needed to avoid hypoglycemia during or after exercise.
