Changes to some sugary drinks and foods

Note: Changes to some sugary drinks and foods
If you usually have a sugary drink or food such as sweets when you’re feeling hypo, check the label as some drinks and foods will soon contain less sugar. This means that you are likely to need more to treat a hypo or might not be able to treat your hypo as well. To find out why this is happening, go to 'Soft drinks industry levy: frequently asked questions'.
For those of you that use Lucozade Energy Original as your hypo treatment of choice, please be aware that from April 2017, it will contain 50 per cent less sugar, so it is likely you will have to drink more to treat your hypo. For a period of time, there will be both old and new stock of Lucozade on sale, so check the label before you buy. Your diabetes healthcare team can help you to adjust the amount of hypo treatment needed. Find out more about the changes to Lucozade drinks.
