    Here is a great discussion on what you should do for a low. http://www.diabeticconnect.com/diabetes-discussions/general/16969-15-15-rule-do-you-know-it
    As many have said, water doesn't raise your levels. You are right, so trust what you know. If you want to raise it quick, just use about 15 grams of a fast acting carb like OJ or sugar or glucose tablets. Then once it's going up, you can add the peanut butter or some regular food items to help keep it up and stop the rapid rise.
