I thought of glucagon in case food wasn’t working; it’s a hormone produced by your pancreas that will get your liver to convert glycogen (stored long chain glucose) into glucose (ready to use). Diabetics sometimes take it when their sugars are so low they can’t eat or drink, or if the low hasn’t come up in awhile. It’s not a great idea to be taking it regularly, but lows are dangerous so I put it out there in case things were desperate. DEFINITELY do what your doctor says (aka ignore me) and if food is working, that’s totally better!
*beetus is just slang for diabetes. Wilford Brimley started that mess. 😉
