Glucogen Emergency Kit

Were you looking for information about GlucaGen? Glucogen emergency kit is a common misspelling and variation of GlucaGen.
 
If you have diabetes and a tendency to develop low blood sugar, you should have a glucagon kit with you at all times in case of an emergency. Each kit comes with everything needed to prepare and inject a dosage of this potentially lifesaving medication. Step-by-step instructions on how to administer the injection are also included.
 
The GlucaGen® HypoKit® is a type of glucagon kit. It is made by Novo Nordisk, Inc. Eli Lilly also makes a kit, sold as Glucagon Emergency Kit. These two products are often considered to be interchangeable for general purposes; however, they are not technically equivalent.
