    The drawback with these tablets is they do not want to dissolve. I am told that when in a hypo I become unco-operative when I come round I find my mouth is filled with undissolved tablets. One plus point is that they are too unpleasant to want to eat them at any other time

    • Hi Michele

      Thanks very much for leaving this feedback, I’m not sure these are the right product for this as they are “chewable” tabs not dissolvable tabs and therefore could be dangerous if you are unresponsive, perhaps you should try the Gluco Gel http://gogluco.slx.tech/product/glucogel-triple-pack-3x25g-tubes/.

    I have been using a rival product for 30 years + and I much prefer GlucoTab. The packaging is robust which keeps the Tabs fresh, stops them deteriorating and stops them making a mess in my pocket / bag. Also the orange tabs have a lovely taste and do the job they are supposed to do. I was very happy to discover this product!
