The latest issue of the online journal Diabetic Hypoglycemia features an authoritative review on sulfonylureas by Professor Ian Campbell, a leading expert in oral hypoglycemia therapy.
Professor Campbell’s review focuses on sulfonylurea-induced hypoglycemia (SIH), which is a well-recognized side-effect of this class of therapy for type 2 diabetes. In the review he discusses the incidence of SIH, with particular reference to the different sulfonylureas. He also reflects on the morbidity and mortality seen with SIH, precipitating risk factors, treatment of SIH, and education of patients and medical staff in the prevention of SIH.
This issue of Diabetic Hypoglycemia also includes a case study on recurring hypoglycemia associated with glibenclamide, by Professor Campbell.
Dr Rory McCrimmon of the Editorial Board reviews the literature on blood glucose monitoring in hypoglycemia, in an editorial entitled ‘What we're learning from continuous glucose monitoring’.
This issue of Diabetic Hypoglycemia also features an ‘In profile’ interview with Professor Stephanie Amiel, a leading expert in the use of neuroimaging in diabetes and hypoglycemia.
