15 Grams of Glucose Per Pack
Our 15 gram serving size reflects the guidelines of the American Diabetes Association for a controlled metered approach to low blood sugar management. Other dry glucose products do not offer a discrete 15 gram serving of glucose.
The sealed flat Slimpaks conveniently go with you wherever and whenever you need them – ready to eat. Other powder products have only 10mg and those in tablet form are just 4mg each, so you have to eat 4 tablets to get the dosage that ONE slimpack has.

Why Use Elovate15 Instead of Other Glucose Products?
Unlike other dry glucose products, Elovate15 uniquely provides the recommended full 15 grams of glucose in one discrete serving.

What is Hypoglycemia, Low Blood Sugar?
Hypoglycemia is a physiological state that diabetics can experience where blood glucose — the sugar in your blood — falls below normal range. Hypoglycemia is the medical term but you may also hear it referred to as a low blood sugar episode, or the lows. Even when you’re doing all you can to manage your diabetes, you may experience a low.
Usually people experience low blood sugar in its mild form and feel a few mild symptoms like fatigue, confusion, hunger, headache, dizziness, or shakiness. Hypoglycemia, however, can also be experienced in its severe form where you are unable to eat or drink carbohydrate and need the help of another person. Severe hypoglycemia can be life-threatening. At these times being prepared in advance for a low can be life-saving.
