Glucagen Side Effects

What should I watch for?

If you often have periods of low blood sugar, keep this kit with you at all times. Wear a medical identification bracelet or chain to say you have diabetes, and carry a card that lists all your medications.

Show your family members and others where you keep this kit and how to use it. They need to know how to use it before you need it. They can practice by giving you your normal insulin shots. It is important that they practice. A person who has never given you a shot will probably not be able to do it in an emergency.

Symptoms of low blood sugar vary from person to person. Learn to recognize your own. They can include: confusion, cool, pale skin or cold sweats, drowsiness, extreme hunger, fast heartbeat, headache, nausea, vomiting, nervousness or anxiety, shakiness or unsteadiness, tiredness, weakness, or visual changes. Eat or drink something sweet (fruit juice, honey, soft drinks, sugar or sugar water, or syrup) if you get these symptoms. If you do not feel better, ask someone to help you get to a doctor, health care professional or emergency room right away. Do not attempt to drive yourself. Also, remind the person that he/she may need to give you a glucagon injection before medical treatment is available.

After a response to an injection of glucagon, you should eat or drink some carbohydrates to prevent secondary hypoglycemia.
