Hypoglycemia puts patients at risk for injury and death.[i] In addition to a patient’s age, life expectancy, comorbidities, and preferences, glycemic targets should also take into consideration how hypoglycemia might affect the patient’s life. BetaCellsinDiabetes.org has a new hypoglycemia risk calculator you can use at the point-of-case to assess a patient's potential risk for hypoglycemia based on age, diabetes, type, current medications, and more.

 

To help clinicians assess a patient’s risk for hypoglycemia, BetaCellsinDiabetes.org offers a free, interactive hypoglycemia risk calculator* that helps a clinician determine whether a patient’s risk of hypoglycemia is low or high based on important patient characteristics including:

·         Age

·         Diabetes Type

·         Diabetes Duration

·         Current Medications

·         History of Hypoglycemia
