WHAT IS GLUCAGEN HYPOKIT USED FOR?
GlucaGen HypoKit is a glucagon emergency kit used to treat very low blood sugar (severe hypoglycemia) in people with diabetes and as a diagnostic aid during certain radiologic tests to temporarily stop stomach movement in adults.
This medication is the same as your body’s own glucagon, a natural substance that raises blood sugar by causing the body to release sugar stored in the liver. It is used to treat very low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) that may cause you to need help from others.
To be ready ahead of time, make sure a family member or caregiver knows where you keep this medication and how to use it.Glucagon may also be used before certain X-ray procedures of the gut. It slows down movement of the stomach, intestines, and colon, which may help make the X-ray more clear.
