Im sure if you talk to your employer and let them know whats going on they will understand. Even if it means giving you a quick potty break for water. Take juice boxes with you to work, or a piece of fruit cut up in a baggie, but you should always keep the glucose tablets in your pocket and purse, cause you never know!!! Better safe than sorry.

You can always bring a small juice box with you and it takes two seconds to zip it down so you do not go too low. How about eating a glucerna bar before your shift starts, it is suppose to help over a period of time to stabilize your bs.

Great siggestions. Also carry some glucose tabs for emergencies. Also, alert your supervisor that if they happen to see you drinking a juice or eating a bar, you are not goofing off, but stabilizing your sugars. They should understand.
