Abstract

Hypoglycemia is a common problem in pharmacologically treated patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus and can be a major barrier to achieving optimal glycemic control. For practitioners to minimize and treat hypoglycemia, it is important to understand the physiology, risk factors, and medications associated with hypoglycemia. Through education, lifestyle modifications, medication adjustments, and possibly re-examining glycemic goals, practitioners can reduce the incidence of hypoglycemia while still decreasing the risk of microvascular complications associated with hyperglycemia.
