Brief Answer: Yes Detailed Answer: Glucon D is pure sugar. In small quantities it will not affect blood glucose levels. However if consumed in large quantities it will raise blood sugar levels significantly. So if a person with diabetes has a low sugar reaction then taking about 15-20 grams of glucon D will raise the sugar back to normal range, although the individual should consume s proper meal soon to prevent the sugar from dropping again.
