Patient weight

<15 kg

15-30 kg

>30 kg

Amount of carbohydrate

5g

10g

15g

This would equal to in the case of Gluco5g:
1 tablet of Gluco5g for children <15 kg
2 tablets of Gluco5g for children 15-30 kg
3 tablets of Gluco5g for children >30 kg

Making the dose very easy to calculate for children.
