New data emphasize importance of avoiding hypoglycemic glucose levels in type 1 diabetes

January 09, 2019

New Rochelle, NY, January 9, 2019--Researchers have shown that measures of biochemical hypoglycemia in fingerstick blood samples are associated with an increased risk of severe hypoglycemic events. The results of this new study, which further emphasize the dangers of hypoglycemic blood glucose levels, are published in Diabetes Technology & Therapeutics (DTT), a peer-reviewed journal from Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers.

Roy Beck, MD, PhD, Jaeb Center for Health Research (Tampa, FL), Richard Bergenstal, MD, International Diabetes Center Park Nicollet (Minneapolis, MN), and Tonya Riddlesworth, PhD and Craig Kollman, PhD, Jaeb Center for Health Research, present their findings in the article entitled "The Association of Biochemical Hypoglycemia with the Subsequent Risk of a Severe Hypoglycemic Event: Analysis of the DCCT Data Set." The researchers used two different levels of biochemical hypoglycemia - <70 or <54 mg>

"Severe hypoglycemia is a significant hurdle for intensifying insulin therapy in patients with T1D. Beck and colleagues emphasize the increased risk of future severe hypoglycemia in patients with any level of biochemical hypoglycemia," says DTT Editor-in-Chief Satish Garg, MD, Professor of Medicine and Pediatrics at the University of Colorado Denver (Aurora).

Dispatch 6: Strange Times
Covid has disrupted the most basic routines of our days and nights. But in the middle of a conversation about how to fight the virus, we find a place impervious to the stalled plans and frenetic demands of the outside world. It's a very different kind of front line, where urgent work means moving slow, and time is marked out in tiny pre-planned steps. Then, on a walk through the woods, we consider how the tempo of our lives affects our minds and discover how the beats of biology shape our bodies.
