The number of people diagnosed with diabetes mellitus continues to grow. It takes a team of healthcare practitioners, including a diabetes specialist (physician, nurse practitioner or physician assistant), a diabetes nurse educator, a dietitian, and ideally, a mental health counselor and an exercise physiologist, to best coordinate and teach people about the management of type 1 diabetes. However, most people with type 1 diabetes don’t have access to this “dream team.” Nonspecialists often must provide the bulk of diabetes mellitus care to this patient population, and they may not have up-to-date knowledge and experience about therapy and resources.


The goal of this diabetes mellitus continuing education module is to update nurses’, dietitians’, health educators’ and laboratory professionals’ ability to recognize, prevent and treat hypoglycemia in tightly controlled type 1 diabetes. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Discuss the physiological response to hypoglycemia
  • Identify causes of hypoglycemia in relation to diabetes self-management
  • Describe clinical interventions for the prevention and treatment of hypoglycemia
Level of Instruction: Basic

Jamie Dillinger, CRNP, MSN, CDE, has declared she is a pump and sensor trainer consultant for Medtronic Diabetes.
