How BAQSIMI works
BAQSIMI contains glucagon, which is a naturally occurring hormone that works by telling your liver to bring blood sugar back up. The glucagon in BAQSIMI is the same active ingredient that has been around for decades.
BAQSIMI has not been studied in children under 4 years of age.
How is BAQSIMI different?
BAQSIMI is different from other low blood sugar emergency treatments because it is delivered as a puff in the nose instead of as an injection. BAQSIMI should still be given in a low blood sugar emergency even if you are passed out, because BAQSIMI is absorbed through the nose and doesn't need to be inhaled. BAQSIMI should still be given even if your nose is congested or you have used decongestants.
