    Fast Treatment for Low Blood Sugar

    I know there are a million ways to treat low blood sugar…but what works the FASTEST? How long does it take you to recover from low blood sugar? I have run into going from low blood sugar to high blood sugar after treatment because I still feel the effects of low blood sugar. When I'm back to normal but still feel low I end up overdoing it on treatment. Or my sugar ends up too high before my next meal. Needless to say, I feel like crap after the yoyo of low then high blood sugar. Any recommendations would be appreciated!

    I use Pepsi for my crashes. I have crashed clear down into the 40's and half a can of Pepsi will bring me up into the mid 70's in a few minutes, then I eat something protien like Jerkey or something. I also take Lantus 25 units before bed. I think Lantus helps me not to have high sugars through out the day along with my Novolog.
