Why Dex4 Glucose (D-Glucose)?
When treating hypoglycemia, it is important to understand which type of sugar is the fastest at raising your low blood sugar. As you will find out, not all sugars are created equal.
The main types of sugar are:
Dextrose (D-Glucose) also known as dextrose, is often called the most important sugar because all organisms are reliant on it in one way or another. It is the primary sugar in the blood and is the sole energy source for the brain, kidneys, and red blood cells. It is immediately processed and is able to quickly raise blood sugar levels unlike other types of sugars.
Sucrose (table sugar) and Lactose (milk solids) are common ingredients found in soft drinks, candy, and dairy products. Sucrose and lactose are disaccharides formed from d-glucose. These would not exist if it were not for glucose.
Our bodies must convert lactose and sucrose back into d-glucose to be used as fuel for our cells, which takes time and energy.
Fructose is a common ingredient found in juices and fruit juice candies. It is derived from the digestion of sucrose, a disaccharide consisting of glucose and fructose that is broken down by enzymes during digestion. Fructose depends on glucose to carry it into the blood stream.
Sucralose is an artificial sweetner.
The human body cannot digest or metabolize sucralose (Splenda), so it yields no calories, and has no impact on blood sugar.
