Baqsimi (Glucagon Nasal Powder) is used to treat severe hypoglycemia (very low blood sugar) in adults and children ages 4 and older with either type 1 or type 2 diabetes. Glucagon belongs to the class of medications called glycogenolytic agents. It works by causing the liver to release stored sugar into the blood hence it increases blood sugar levels. It also works by relaxing smooth muscles of the stomach and other digestive organs that aid in digestion. Hypoglycemia should be treated as quickly as possible. Having low blood sugar for too long can cause seizure, coma or death.
