GlucaGen is an injectable glucagon which is used for treatment of severe low blood glucose in adults and children with diabetes treated with insulin. GlucaGen can be injected under the skin (subcutaneously) or into the muscle (intramuscularly) when used to treat severe low blood glucose.
Once injected, it starts working in 10 minutes, peaks in 30 minutes, and lasts 60 to 90 min. Seek emergency assistance immediately after subcutaneous or intramuscular injection of glucagon. Once awake or responsive to GlucaGen treatment, consume oral carbohydrates to prevent recurrence of severe low blood glucose
