Health Tip: Prevent Low Blood Sugar

Take meds as prescribed to ward off hypoglycemia

(HealthDay News) -- Low blood sugar, medically called hypoglycemia, can be prevented.

The National Diabetes Information Clearinghouse recommends these steps to help reduce the risk of hypoglycemia:

  • Take diabetes medications exactly how and when your doctor prescribes them.
  • Follow a healthy meal plan and eat regular meals and snacks. Work with a dietitian to help create a meal plan that fits your lifestyle.
  • Know when to eat a snack (such as before bed and before exercise) and what type of snack to eat.
  • Know how and when to check blood glucose, and adjust medications according to physical activity.
  • Know how much alcohol is safe for you to drink.
