New ACE survey shows people with type 2 diabetes experience low blood sugar during typical daily activities
Date:4/14/2011

quickly treating them is important symptoms may be mild at first but may worsen quickly if not treated. According to the survey, 6 percent of patients with type 2 diabetes have had to go to the emergency room at some point as a result of low blood sugar. The need for emergency care is just one of the potential consequences resulting from untreated low blood sugar. The survey also indicated that about one in five (21%) patients who have experienced it have needed assistance from others. It is important that patients and their friends, family and caregivers recognize and understand the symptoms of low blood sugar and what to do if it occurs.

To help bridge this knowledge gap, ACE recently launched the Blood Sugar Basics program, which aims to help people living with diabetes, their families and loved ones learn about the importance of understanding and managing low and high blood sugar. While the program is focused on type 2 diabetes, the most common type of diabetes, it also may be useful for people with other types of diabetes. The Blood Sugar Basics program is supported by Merck.

"Low blood sugar can be an alarming experience for people with type 2 diabetes, and failure to recognize and treat symptoms in a timely manner can cause serious complications," says Etie Moghissi, MD, FACP, FACE, AACE vice president and associate clinical professor of medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles. "Low blood sugar can be avoided, so it's important for patients to know what can cause blood sugar levels to drop and talk with their doctor about how they can reduce the frequency of future episodes."

To help patients with type 2 diabetes learn more about symptoms and causes of low and high blood sugar, the Blood Sugar Basics website breaks down information on blood sugar into easy-to-understand interactive features, downloadable resources and fact pages to help people with diabetes learn more about managing blood sugar levels.
