There are several different ways to manage hypoglycaemic episodes and it will also depend on how severe it is. It is important to ensure that you do follow-up monitoring and also not to take only a sweet substance as that may only have short-term effects, and you thus should also have something that will have lasting effects. You also get glucagon that can be used by a third party in case of a severe hypoglycaemic episode - please discuss with your Health Care team as they know your situation the best.
