Glucose tablets are special oral medication individuals with diabetes should carry with them at all times. Many diabetes patients take medications that can make them prone to developing insulin shock. Since this can often be triggered by exercise, doctors often advise these patients to carry glucose tablets with them while at the gym and during all physical activities. Glucose tablets are more effective at raising glucose levels than fruit juice and high-sugar snacks. The tablets are chewable and come in a wide variety of flavors. For patients who cannot chew to consume glucose tablets, glucose gels, powdered glucose, and liquid glucose formulas are all available. Patients can get these products over-the-counter at pharmacies, and many doctors advise they always have more than one package with them in case of emergency.
