Summary:

Diabetes has become epidemic. In 2015, about 30.3 million people in the U.S. (9.4% of the population) had diabetes. Type 1 diabetes accounts for 5% of all cases of diabetes and develops when the body’s immune system begins to destroy pancreatic beta cells, resulting in an absolute absence of the hormone insulin. These people are prone to hypoglycemia when trying to maintain tight control, which has been shown to reduce complications. This module discusses hypoglycemia, its causes, signs and symptoms, prevention, and treatments.

Objectives:

The goal of this diabetes mellitus continuing education module is to update healthcare 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
