Lilly Glucagon is designed to treat patients with diabetes and severe hypoglycemia. Do you have a Glucagon kit at home, and do you or your loved ones know how to use it?
You can get a white teaching kit from Lilly by calling (800)LILLY-RX. And to learn more, you could try the mightily helpful Glucagon phone app, simply called “Glucagon.” You can use this app to go through a practice simulation of using Glucagon in an emergency, including how to mix (swirl) the powder and liquid and where to inject (thigh, arm, or buttocks).
Most importantly, there is a special section with instructions for an actual emergency, with animated pictures and audio directions.
The Glucagon app also has a section about “My Kit Information” to help you track where you are keeping your kit(s) in the house and when they expire. There is a function to set reminders to make sure you update your Glucagon kit before passing the expiration date.
In the app's content, you can learn more about this critical emergency treatment tool, including:
· When it's appropriate to use Glucagon
· Contraindications and precautions
· Details about severe low blood sugar
· Glucagon tips
· Other helpful diabetes links
