February 9, 2018 Category :Diabetes Research 0

A seven-month trial conducted by a team of researchers from the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, said that parents, more than their type 1 diabetic children, have a hard time recognizing warming signs of hypoglycemia or extremely low blood sugar levels.

Researchers found that parents missed their children’s moderate hypoglycemia 54% of the time, while children missed 41% of these episodes.

In the study, the researchers asked 61 children, aged 6 to 11, and their parents to rate hypoglycemia symtoms, estimate the child’s blood sugar level, and measure it using a survey programmed on a personal digital assistant. Study participants completed 70 of these tests over a month, then reported cases of severe hypoglycemia for the next six months. » Continue Reading
