Yes: If you take medication for diabetes, 8 oz of juice or skin milk or 3 quick-dissolving glucose tablets are effective therapy. If you're not on diabetes medication, you don't have hypoglycemia, so don't take anything -- it will just perpetuate the problem. No one gets hypoglycemic without cancer, end-stage renal or liver disease, GI surgery or other medical problems.
