Poll dates: October 27 - November 3, 2010

Just over half (53%) of people who responded to this poll treat hypoglycemia with juice, soda, or milk. Commercial glucose tablets are used by one-forth (25%). 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.)
