Almost two-thirds (64%) of people who responded to this poll treat hypoglycemia with juice, soda, or milk. Commercial glucose tablets are used by about one-fifth (19%). Honey or cake gel, which work well for little kids, are used by only 2%. [Caution: do not give honey to kids younger than one year.] Surprisingly, commercial glucose gels are used by only 1% of people who responded.
