You might be familiar with Lilly's red plastic Glucagon Emergency Kits. As of December 31, 2022, Lilly will discontinue those kits. Check out these articles from Beyond Type 1 and DiaTribe for more information.

So what are your options?

  • Baqsimi® - A dry glucagon nasal spray treatment which you or someone else can administer
  • Gvoke HypoPen® - A pre-mixed glucagon solution with an auto-injector that is very similar to an EpiPen
  • Zegalogue® - A ready-to-use glucagon analogue injectable treatment for severe hypos which comes in an auto-injector or a pre-filled syringe

Watch the video below and read blog posts from young adults in our network to learn more about these treatment options!
