Hello from JustAnswer.
Since he is feeling better, that is a good sign, but it still would be better to get the blood sugar higher.
It would be appropriate to give him a solid food that contains a greater amount of sugar, such as a cookie or a candy bar. These may cause his sugar to get too high, but it would be safer to have a sugar that is too high than for the blood sugar to get any lower.
If I can provide any further information, please let me know.
