Reverse the Lucozade sugar cut

This petition had 177 supporters

The level of sugar in lucozade has recently halved, so diabetics (predominantly type 1) now need to consume twice as much to treat an episode of hypoglycaemia.

Hypoglycaemia can cause nausea and reduced motor function. Therefore consuming double the amount of liquid, is not a reasonable expectation.
Lucozade have advised sonsumers to “check the nutritional information” as there are still both old and new bottles in circulation. However, when I’m having a hypo a person is in no fit state to read fine print. Furthermore, the sugar has been replaced with artificial sweeteners, which can cause headaches and stomach issues.

As a carbonated sugary drink, lucozade has been one of the most effective hypo treatments and reduces hypo anxiety for a large number of diabetics.

I am calling for a reverse in the sugar cut, which has been both a medical issue and a kick in the teeth for the large number of diabetics who use it as a medication to treat hypoglycaemia.
