A lower GI snack is superior if taken in time, as a high sugar snack will precipitate another hypoglycemic cycle. I often use a glass of warm milk - if necessary this can be sweetened with sugar. For those with lactose intolerance, a banana is also a good choice.
Hypoglycaemia is LOW sugar in the blood. So what would cottage cheese, cream, milk do?! Jesus. Yes they might contain (minimal) carbohydrates but you need food containing high amounts of simple sugars that are absorbed quickly to treat the hypo 'attack' as asked in the question.
Some peoples stupidity really can be dangerous. A diabetic hypo treated with cottage cheese will not do anything! If you don't know what you're talking about don't bother. Health is being discussed here, you know the thing that determines people's lifespans. Christ.
sugars are only for an emergency!!! that means on the verge of collapse.
if the symptoms of hypoglycemia shaky, trembling etc come on this does not nescecairly mean that sugar is needed. regular sugar will only make matters worse. if sugars are required due to regular hypos the overall diet needs looking at.
earlier on i had hypoglycemic symptoms but i didnt straight away reach for a glucose tab, i ate half an apple and then prepared an ommlette with cheese and mushrooms. then lay down for ten minutes and my blood sugar began to level out.
if sugars are consumed make sure within 20 minutes you consume protein, tuna or cottage cheese etc
