I am fortunate to have a team of great nurses and a wonderful nutritionist in my office. As I was on my way into see a patient, I overheard one of our nurses going into great deal of detail educating a young patient with diabetes about the concerns of low blood sugar. Her conversation reminded me that this is a subject of great importance to patients with diabetes. I will take this opportunity to highlight information on issues related to hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) such as:

  • What are the signs and symptoms of hypoglycemia?
  • When should you be concerned?
  • What to do for diabetes treatment?
  • When you should seek medical attention.
