Even with 5 shots of insulin a day (2 long term and 3 at meals) I seldom have a low blood sugar because my carb formula is worked out and I'm very good at keeping up with what I eat. But they do happen on occasion and this little key chain device for holding glucose tablets has helped me on more than one occasion.
I do find myself away from home sometimes and away from meds. For example my parents are aging and while over there the other day to cut grass and other chores I was dragging big limbs into the woods after a storm and found myself quite a ways into the woods and a low coming on fast. My little key chain holder for glucose tablets once again saved the day.
I used to have the little glucose pills in a cylinder device, but I would always forget to grab it, but I do not forget my keys and the little holder is always there, I just have to fill it back up if I use it.
I have the photo of the low cost device on my photo page here and it was about $3 at Wal-mart in the pharmacy area. Hope this helps, just remember it hold 4 tablets only.
