This information is for people who may help you if you are
too weak or confused to treat your own low blood sugar from
diabetes or some other health condition that can cause low blood sugar. Make a copy for your partner, coworkers, and
friends. If your child has diabetes, you need to provide a copy for teachers,
coaches, and other school staff.
If the person has type 2 diabetes and is taking medicine that can continue to cause low blood sugar, stay with the person for a few hours after his
or her blood sugar level has returned to the target range.
