Man walking

How do you help your patient, a 48-year-old Hispanic man with hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes manage his diabetes and avoid hypoglycemia? This interactive case study features current definitions of hypoglycemia, hypoglycemia unawareness, and hypoglycemia-associated autonomic failure while explaining the implications of hypoglycemia on both short- and long-term outcomes of Type 2 diabetes mellitus.

Respond to questions about key points in the patient's care and get expert opinion from Dr. Irl Hirsch, endocrinologist, and Dr. Doron Schneieder, internist. 

Use our hypoglycemia risk calculator to help assess your own type 2 diabetes patients' risk of hypoglycemia.
