Hypoglycemia is the limiting factor in the glycemic management of diabetes. It causes recurrent morbidity in patients with diabetes and is sometimes fatal. For most people with diabetes who are at risk for hypoglycemia, health care providers should focus on the risk factors of hypoglycemia and more actively seek a solution to the problem in order to prevent the development of severe hypoglycemia. The glycemic goals should be individualized in patients with diabetes in order to minimize the risk of iatrogenic hypoglycemia. In addition, appropriate drug selection, structured patient education, and short-term avoidance of hypoglycemia will reduce the incidence of hypoglycemia. Patient education needs to cover a broad range of information on hypoglycemia and practical training in order to prevent and manage hypoglycemia.
Key Words: Diabetes mellitus, Hypoglycemia, Risk management
