Abstract
Hypoglycemia is one barrier in providing optimal glycemic control in diabetes patients, and ironically the risk factors for hypoglycemia tend to be higher in patients with poor glycemic control. Severe hypoglycemia is common among patients with diabetes across all levels of glycemic control. Identifying causes, symptoms, and optimal treatment, as well as changing unsafe behaviors are ways to avoid severe hypoglycemic events. There is potential for harm from hypoglycemia, so re-education to treat and prevent hypoglycemia should be instituted, in accordance with current practice guidelines. Personalized attention is warranted, especially for patients receiving insulin or oral hypoglycemic agents who may not have been properly educated or may need re-education regarding hypoglycemia.
Key Words: Diabetes, Education, Hypoglycemia
