I am thankful cor squeeze tube fruit sauces that do not require refrigeration, are gluten free, and are about 15+/- grams of carbs.
Just treated an episode of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). Very nasty when they sneak up on you when you’re snoozin’. I wake up panicky and tend to over eat trying to compensate for the low sugar, resulting in a HYPERglycemic problem (too much sugar)–or maybe that’s hypoinsulemia (not enough insulin). In any case, the yoyo effect regarding blood sugar tends to be physically painful and generally makes me feel crappy the next day until balance is restored.
Having gluten free, precounted carb alternatives right at hand really help in potentially dangerous situations like this.
Unfortunately, it’s been so long since I’ve had to treat a mid-night sugar low, I ended up over indulging anyway. That hypoglycemic panic is tremendously hard to counter out of a sound sleep. Today could be a long, no so fun day.
