My sister is a type 2 diabetic who travels a lot. What are some good things to keep in her purse to snack on?
Glucose tablets. If she is on a glucose lowering agent such as sulphonylurea or insulin, she must have free access to simple sugar in case she experiences a hypoglycemic episode ( such as glucose tablets , hard candy). Granula bars and carb free snacks will also help her maintain bs during active time. If she is Insulin dependent, she is advised to wear a medical alert bracelet.
