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?
In a low blood sugar emergency, you may need something other than oral carbs, like orange juice or candy, to recover. BAQSIMI can get low blood sugar back up when you can't safely eat or drink oral carbs. It’s different from other low blood sugar emergency treatments because it’s given as a puff in the nose instead of as an injection. BAQSIMI is small and easy to have on hand in an emergency. Because BAQSIMI doesn't have to be refrigerated, you can keep your BAQSIMI with you, whether you're at school, at work, or on the go.
BAQSIMI is not for everyday ups and downs in blood sugar, it’s for a low blood sugar emergency. Find out more about when to use BAQSIMI.
