When to use BAQSIMI
If your blood sugar drops from low (mild or moderate) to very low (severe), you could have a low blood sugar emergency, and that’s when BAQSIMI can help. BAQSIMI should be used if you’re having a low blood sugar emergency, where you’re unable to eat or drink and need help from someone else. Some signs of a low blood sugar emergency are feeling dizzy, shaking, sweating, or even passing out. Your family and friends can help with BAQSIMI if you are conscious or passed out.

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.
Remember, BAQSIMI is for an emergency when blood sugar is very low.
