This blog is not only for people with low blood sugar, but also for people who have to deal with a partner, a friend, a family member or a roommate with low blood sugar on a daily basis. Would you like to know what you can do to help in case of need? If so, please read on.
Keep an eye on it
It is important to know that low blood sugar is not immediately life-threatening, but of course it can be dangerous and therefore needs to be monitored. If the blood sugar really gets too low, a person may not be able to drink a sip of water or eat while he or she desperately needs it.
Call the doctor
It is important to call the doctor immediately to get help. When blood sugar levels are so low, that a person can no longer eat or drink on his or her own, a doctor’s help is urgently needed. Besides calling your doctor, there are other things you can do. The best way is to get honey and use a spoon to apply honey to the inside of the cheeks. As a result, some sugar is already absorbed by the body. Drinking or eating will most likely not be possible. Therefore, applying honey on the cheeks is by far the best choice.
Don’t be alarmed if you encounter someone with low blood sugar who needs help (this can even happen on the street). Help that person and stay calm. Call the doctor in question and the doctor will help that person further.
