What interest for people living with diabetes?
Hypoglycemia affects a large majority of people living with diabetes. If the hypo is not detected in time and / or the carbohydrates intake is not adapted, the consequences can be dramatic. Dextrose guarantees a very rapid increase of the blood sugar level: in fact, this type of carbohydrate has the highest glycemic index, equal to 100. This index allows to measure the impact on the increase of blood glucose level for any carbohydrates source. By comparison, the glycemic index of sucrose is equal to 65 and is commonly used in situations where blood sugar level is too low.
Hence, the 15g of Dextrose included in Glucosprint Plus® ensures a very rapid rise in blood sugar level and a measurable and controllable effect, without fear of the rebound effect. Moreover, Glucosprint Plus® comes in very convenient and discreet vials, easy to carry at any time anywhere, in pocket or a purse.
What is it?
Glucosprint Plus® is a quick and efficient solution to treat low blood sugar level. It contains dextrose vitamin B1 and manganese that contribute to a normal energy-yielding metabolism.
