I know that it is a simple carb, almost like refined sugar and excess gets stored as fat....But if a non-diabetic doesn't eat and they have symptoms of low blood sugar, what happens when they take a glucose tablet?

A non-diabetic would normally have their liver release glucose to normalize their blood sugars. Everyone has that feeling sometimes; you're at the mall or the beach all day and you don't eat, but if you rest for a few minutes you get your second wind and you can get up and go again. That's your blood sugar being raised by your liver.If you were to eat glucose tablets, it would be like eating candy. Your body would treat it the same way it treats an influx of simple sugar. It won't give you high blood sugar (if that's what you're asking) because in a non-diabetic, the pancreas can crank out insulin enough to cover it.

It's exactly the same thing as eating some hard candy, except glucose tablets/jel are meant first: not appetizing enough to be eaten when not hypoglycemic helping ensure you always have some handy if you need them, and second: easier to consume, don't take as much effort to quickly absorb as breaking several hard candies with your teeth would.So, yes, if you haven't eaten for a while and are feeling low (everyone forgets sometinmes, that's normal), they're perfectly safe.That said, if you have the'symptoms of low blood sugar'often, please see a doctor. Hypoglycemia that's not related to the very occasional"I forgot to eat and was active"is a sign that something is wrong.

If anyone is feeling low sugar then he should take glucose tablets to get energy instantly. It will help in feeling better in quite some time.
