Hi

If you are diabetic then the low glucose level is treated by giving 15 grams of carbohydrate and retesting 15 minutes later. If it is still low, then you must repeat the process. You then want to work out why your glucose level went low, i.e do you need to adjust your medication or your diet.....if you are not sure, then you will need to discuss with your doctor
