Dex 4 To The Rescue
I just had to take a moment and blog about a recent "low blood" sugar that we had when we were in Myrtle Beach. Nikki was getting ready to go on a ride, while in line she felt low and tested her blood sugar she was 60. She proceeded to pull out her container of "Dex 4 bits" and started to eat them, all of her friends wanted to try them and guess what they all loved them. Nikki really felt great about sharing this treat with her friends while also bringing up her low blood sugar.
Some times I forget that it's hard to stop having fun to treat a low, she really wanted to go on the ride with everyone else yet we had to treat this low. There have been many times where I have had to pull her out of line or take her out of a game to treat the low, being able to treat her low and continue on with her friends really made a difference.
Remember they are kids first and the more we can do to make their lives normal the happier we all our. Having fast acting sugars that taste good and work quickly are essential in keeping our kids happy and healthy.
Just had to share this, here is the link to Dex 4 "bits". I am sure that everyone has their favorite for treating lows feel free to share!
