For #HypoAwarenessWeek #diabeteschat spoke toDr Pratik Choudhary. Following the Guest Speaker chat we had a #diabeteschat community panel discussion about Hypos and Hypo Awareness. On the Panel was Tony, Chris, Flipper, Marc, Liz, Claire and Tom. We asked our community the following questions:
– Do you have Hypo awareness?
– What symptoms & at what levels do you start showing signs of hypo?
– What is the lowest Blood Glucose Level you have recorded?
– How do you help prevent hypo (tech, regular checking etc)? How does it make you feel not having Hypo Awareness? If you do have Hypo Awareness how does it make you feel that one day you might not have Hypo Awareness?
– How can parents/carers support #PWD with hypos?
