I'm sorry for ranting but I think this is so irresponsible. They are fortunate the test didn't negatively impact you. In vulnerable people Glucola will cause rapid swings in blood sugar which can cause mental fogginess, drowsiness, fainting, and even seizures. Mental fogginess, drowsiness, fainting, and convulsions ARE NOT SAFE in someone operating a motor vehicle on the public roadways. I think any HCPs who recommend people of unknown insulin response take Glucola while operating motor vehicles deserve to be sued and to lose their licenses.
Like I mentioned in the car seat and snowsuits thread, I worked for a physical medicine and rehabilitation, a hospital department who patient base was 1/3 crash victims. I have zero tolerance for professional (especially HCPs!) recklessly endangering public safety.
