Minimizing hypoglycemia while maintaining glycemic control in diabetes

By S. Heller

Abstract

In the accompanying Perspective, Cryer identifies a number of different areas where therapeutic interventions have the potential to reduce hypoglycemia without compromising glycemic control. Some approaches provide well defined clinical benefits, a few offer dramatic reductions in hypoglycemia but remain out of reach for most people while others, although promising have yet to be properly evaluated. (Table 1)\ud In this Perspective, I examine the evidence which underpins these interventions. It is beyond the scope of this article to review the data for each potential intervention in detail but the reader is directed to the appropriate source where appropriate. The Perspective focuses on treatment of Type 1 diabetes as most of the potential specific therapies have been evaluated in this group although I have commented in relation to recent trials of intensive therapy in Type 2 diabetes. \u
