Question:

From Windsor, Connecticut, USA:

Our seven year old experiences quite a few lows during the day. Can you give us an idea of how many points his blood sugar should go up with each gram of carbohydrates given?

Answer:

It varies from child to child, but one carbohydrate exchange (15 grams) usually raises the blood sugar about 30-50 mg/dl.
