Glucose 5 solution is used for the treatment of fluid and sugar (carbohydrate) losses, as well as for diluting or administering other active substances by means of an infusion. It can be used to compensate for water loss caused by excessive sweating or kidney disease, for example. Together with appropriate electrolyte substitution, it can also be used for hydration.

 It can also be used to cover the daily water requirement and to supply tiny amounts of energy, for example to patients in intensive care who cannot drink on their own. In addition, it is excellently suited as a carrier solution for water-soluble pharmaceuticals. However, due to the acidic pH of the solution, incompatibilities may occur when mixing with other medicines.
