Glucagone

Were you looking for information about Glucagon? Glucagone is a common misspelling of glucagon.
 
Glucagon is an injectable medication approved to treat dangerously low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). It is also approved for use in certain diagnostic tests, as it has been shown to slow down the digestive tract temporarily. If your healthcare provider has prescribed this medication, make sure you and those around you know how to use this potentially lifesaving drug in the event of a low blood sugar emergency.
 
Typically, glucagon is injected just under the skin. Side effects are generally uncommon and may include things like nausea, vomiting, and a short-term increase in heart rate.
