Better yet, treat a low with something less than a whole Snickers bar 
(33 g carb.)  I use 16 gm of glucose or pure sugar candy, wait 15 
minutes and test again to make sure I'm not still going down.  If 
you're really low a Snickers bar is better than nothing, but the fat 
content will slow the effect.  I reserve chocolate for minor lows 
(above 65) or pre-exercise.
