Event Description

Hypoglycemia, low blood glucose, is a concern for everyone with diabetes. A very serious complication known as Hypoglycemia Unawareness (HU), occurs when a person is unable to feel the usual symptoms of low blood sugar: trembling, sweating, nausea, inability to articulate or function. HU is a serious matter that everyone affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D) should be informed about. Steve Edelman, founder, Taking Control of Your Diabetes (TCOYD) and Bill Polonsky, founder of Behavioral Diabetes Institute (BDI) will address both the medical and the psycho/social aspects of hypoglycemia and will also shed light on the dangers of hypoglycemia unawareness, especially during the night. They will share useful information and resources to help navigate through the complexities of this issue.

This is the first in a new adult type 1 diabetes series called "Walking the T1D Tightrope" and a can't miss event for all adults with T1D and adults who have loved ones with T1D!
• What is hypoglycemia unawareness and how does it affect T1D?
• Intensive diabetes management and HU
• Complications of HU ― including “dead in bed” syndrome* ― and who’s most at risk
• Minimizing risk for hypoglycemia unawareness
• The role of the A1c test and hypoglycemia in T1D management
