How to treat hypoglycemia urgently?
✚ For unconscious people, immediately give 50% glucose 20ml intravenous injection
✚ For those who are conscious, they should quickly replenish the easily-absorbed carbohydrates (15-20g of sugar):
1 sipping sugar or honey; 200ml of juice or syrup; 1 ~3 pieces of diabetes-specific glucose tablets; 3~5 cookies, etc.
✚Monitor blood glucose every 15 minutes.
If blood glucose is still less than 3.9mmol/L, take 15g of glucose until blood glucose is normal.
✚ If blood glucose does not return to normal in the short term, you should go to the hospital immediately!
