Drug Information:
Dextrose (Glucose) is a form of natural sugar that is normally produced by the liver. Glucose is a source of energy, and all the cells and organs in your body need Glucose to function properly. Glucose as a medication is given either by mouth (orally) or by injection. Dextrose is used to treat very low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), most often in people with diabetes mellitus. Dextrose is given by injection to treat insulin shock (low blood sugar caused by using insulin and then not eating a meal or eating enough food afterward). This medicine works by quickly increasing the amount of Glucose in your blood. Learn more
