As a type 1 with 55years + experience, I rely on original Lucozade for the more serious hypos, and very occasionally, it has been the difference between recovery and going into a coma. I keep 350ml bottles in strategic places like our kitchen, by the bed and in the car. As everyone knows, you can get lucozade into yourself (as long as you are concious) so much quicker than munching Dextose tablets. My concern, is not so much about a possible price increase (as I don't use lots) but that the manufacturer might reduce the sugar in the product. I will write to the manufacturer, and I urge anyone concerned to do the same. As an aside; do any who use Lucozade wish there was a see-through strip down the side of the plastic bottle to give an idea of how much you are gulping?
