Hypoglycaemia is an issue amongst people with type 2 diabetes, particularly for those on insulin, yet is still fairly common for other treatment regimens. Now the hypoglycaemic events in the ‘real world’ type 2 diabetes population have been examined in a first-of-its-kind review. The study highlights the need for patient education to raise awareness of hypoglycaemia and for healthcare professionals to consider a patient’s hypoglycaemia risk when prescribing diabetes treatments.
