    Great idea, I’m tired of carrying vials of glucose tabs in my pocket. “Are those Dex4 tabs or are you just happy to see me?” kind of problems.

    Best of luck with the new product development.

    Scott has come up with a wonderful, potentially very profitable, idea. The convenience factor alone would sell the product. And different flavors – chocolate malt takes me back to my pre-type 1 diabetes childhood.

    What really intrigued me, tho, was Scott’s thought about marketing to the non-diabetic community. It will increase his profits by a huge margin. It will also expand the general public’s awareness of diabetes and the challenges we go thru on a daily, no – hourly, no – minute by minute basis.

    Good luck Scott!!! Live long and prosper.

    We really like the GlucoLift tabs. Maybe instead of creating his own brand of tablets, he could partner with other companies already making great tablets and they could have co-branded products.

    I’m all for better portability of the products we already use.

    Also, my child has way more than 10 lows a month. But it all depends in what you consider “low.” (Got a text from the school nurse while I was typing this that she’s 78.)

      Leighann, that’s a great idea!

      I have used and like Gluco-Lift’s glucose tablets(my mom is a big fan as she is into organic and natural products).

      It is a great product which is why I plan on creating a wallet case that fits them as well!

    10 Hypos a month? I wish! I have them just about daily!

      I feel your pain, I’m averaging about one a day. Then I went down to the Oregon Coast for a few relaxing days and proceeded to have about two a day. Being around a group of people informed me of one of the possible causes: sleep apnea!

    Those number of daily hypos are due to insulin overdose and useless nutritional labels; I had recurring hypoglicemias UNTIL I SWITCHED TO A VERY-VERY-LOW-CARB DIET and now I have none.

    As an aside, for ease of opening and less likely to pop open and leave a dusty mess.. Im fond of the Glucolift portable containers, still have the “happy to see you” problem but at least they open easy, but not accidentally and seem to keep the tabs from getting more nasty or humidity affecting them as quick

    I think Alyssa should put a disclaimer that she is advertising her own book.

    HI Scott,
    I am reading this post 5 months later and wondering how things are going for Everyday glucose? during winter months in NJ I don’t have trouble carrying my glucose tabs since I always have a jacket with pockets. However, now that spring is approaching, I would love a smaller and convenient holder for my tabs! I love the idea of something FLAT that could slide into the back pocket of my jeans. My medtronic pump goes in my front pocket.

    Keep your great ideas coming… ANYTHING to help make our T1 lives easier and more convent is a blessing!

    Plus.. always like an update on how your low carb diet is going!!!

    All my best,
