Eat sugar: Drink fruit juice, e.g., orange juice, or eat a piece of candy. If there are symptoms associated with the low sugar readings, and they don't disappear after drinking juice or eating candy seek medical attention immediately. Don't take more insulin or tablets until a true glucometer reading has been established.
