What do you or your child most often use to treat hypoglycemia?

Poll dates: October 29 - November 5, 2006
Total Votes: 609

Almost two-thirds (61%) of people who responded to this poll treat hypoglycemia with juice, soda, or milk. Commercial glucose tablets are used by about one-fifth (22%). Honey or cake gel, which work well for little kids, are used by only 1%. (Caution: do not give honey to kids younger than one year.)

These percentages have remained about the same over the years, according to our previous polls:

Answer   Oct 2006   Oct 2005   Feb 2004   Jan 2003   Oct 2001   Jan 1999
Glucose tablets (DEX4, B-D, etc.)   22%   20%   19%   20%   23%   19%
Glucose gel (MonoGel, Insta-Glucose, etc.)   1%   1%   1%   1%   1%   1%
Juice, soda, or milk   61%   61%   62%   65%   62%   64%
