The Problem of Hypoglycemia in Diabetes Care: An Integrative Overview of the Latest Behavioral, Pharmacological, and Technological Solutions
Date: TBD

This program has been designed as a one-day, interactive, case-based workshop devoted to helping HCPs recognize the widespread problems associated with hypoglycemia to improve their ability to identify problematic hypoglycemia (and the associated consequences, such as profound hypoglycemic fear), and to more confidently address such problems through the judicious use of currently available medications, diabetes technology tools, and innovative behavioral strategies.

By the conclusion of the program, participants will have a more comprehensive understanding of the problem of hypoglycemia in T1D and T2D populations, including the potentially profound medical and psychological costs that often accrue. They will become adept at recognizing and understanding the common problematic presentations, will be able to assess and decipher the medical and behavioral aspects of complex case presentations and select the most critical issues that need to be addressed, will gain confidence in modifying medication regimens and using and prescribing the most appropriate diabetes technology tools, will be able to communicate more effectively and collaboratively with their patients in addressing hypoglycemic problems, and will have acquired the skills and comfort to engage with their patients in providing the needed education and promoting appropriate changes in self-care.

Learning Objectives

Following this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Describe the key types of hypoglycemia, their prevalence in the T1D and T2D populations, and the critical impacts oh hypoglycemia on biomedical outcomes and quality of life.
  • Identify patients who are most at-risk for problematic hypoglycemia.
  • Identify the key components of the hypoglycemic fear syndrome.
  • Discuss the major strategies for addressing impaired hypoglycemic awareness.
  • Describe how available medication options and new diabetes technology can address problematic hypoglycemia.
  • Perform a comprehensive assessment of the major contributors to problematic hypoglycemia and/or hypoglycemic fear.
  • Describe how to engage family and friends to best tackle hypoglycemic problems.
  • Demonstrate the use of diabetes-focused action planning strategies to engage with patients to address critical hypoglycemic problems.
