The recommended dose to raise your blood sugar is 4 tablets (~15 grams).  This amount should be adjusted according to your age and body weight. After dosing, it is recommended that you check you blood sugar levels after 15 minutes to see if the glucose had the desired effect.

Should I test my blood glucose before eating ReliOn® Glucose Tablets?
Yes. It is always best to check your blood glucose before eating ReliOn® Glucose Tablets to confirm that your blood glucose is low, and that you need to eat extra carbohydrates.

How long does it take for ReliOn® Glucose Tablets to work?
Glucose tablets generally work within a few minutes. Consult with your health care provider for specific recommendations on using glucose tablets.

Couldn't I simply eat some chocolate or ice cream to raise my blood glucose?
Yes, but chocolate and ice cream also contain fat which will cause your blood sugar to rise slower than with ReliOn® Glucose Tablets.

Do the ReliOn® Glucose Tablets contain any fat, sodium or caffeine?
No. There is no fat, sodium, caffeine or cholesterol in ReliOn® Glucose Tablets.

[Back to top]

Are the ReliOn® Glucose Tablets kosher?
No, they are not kosher, however, they do not contain any animal products.

[Back to top]

Are the ReliOn® Glucose Tablets gluten-free?
Yes. We have tested our tablets and they are gluten-free. (We do not make this claim on the label).

[Back to top]

Were the ReliOn® Glucose Tablets tested on animals?
No. They were never tested on animals.

[Back to top]

Are there any 15-gram tablets available on the market?
No. A 15-gram tablet would be too big and difficult to chew. Using the 4-gram tablets allows you to better manage how many grams of carbohydrate you are eating.

[Back to top]

Do ReliOn® Glucose Tablets come in different package sizes?
Yes. ReliOn® Glucose Tablets are available in tubes of 10 and bottles of 50. The tubes are small and easy to carry.

[Back to top]

Why don't ReliOn® Glucose Tablets have a NDC (National Drug Code)?
ReliOn® Glucose Tablets are labeled as a food because glucose is a sugar - not a drug. Glucose tablets are used by anybody who wants fast acting carbohydrates. Athletes use them for energy, students for concentration, and some people even use them as a fat-free snack.

[Back to top]

Is there an expiration date on the package of ReliOn® Glucose Tablets?
No. Glucose is a sugar and does not expire. Just like candy, you can eat them years after you bought them. Over time, the tablets may get a little harder and do not taste quite as great, but they're still safe to eat.

[Back to top]

Why are there spots on my ReliOn® Glucose Tablets?
The spots are usually due to moisture. Even if the color changes, they're still safe to eat. Always make sure to store the tablets with the cap tightly closed.

[Back to top]

Why is vitamin C (ascorbic acid) added to the ReliOn® Glucose Tablets?
Ascorbic acid is added for "binding purposes," to improve the consistency of the product.

[Back to top]

Why can’t I find the flavor or size glucose tablets I want at my local Wal-Mart?
While the majority of Wal-Mart stores stock all flavors and sizes of ReliOn® Glucose Tablets, the size of some stores limits the variety they can carry. We recommend speaking with an associate at your local store, as they may be able to special order what you are looking for.
