When to use BAQSIMI
BAQSIMI should be used when someone is having a low blood sugar emergency, where the person is unable to eat or drink and needs help from someone else.
What is a low blood sugar emergency?
There are different levels of low blood sugar: mild, moderate, or severe. If your blood sugar drops low enough that you need help to recover, it is considered to be a low blood sugar emergency, or severe hypoglycemia.
Mild or moderate low blood sugar is common for people with type 1 diabetes, and can occur in people with type 2 diabetes who are using insulin. If not treated, mild or moderate low blood sugar can progress and become severe, requiring the help of someone else to recover. Let those close to you know what the possible signs are so they can be more prepared for an emergency.
It’s important to discuss a plan for a low blood sugar emergency with your doctor, so you and those close to you can feel prepared.
