The month of November is Diabetes Awareness Month. In conjunction with this month's theme, the Society will be hosting a Twitter Chat to raise awareness of hypoglycemia. Hypoglycemia, or a low blood sugar episode, is the single largest barrier individuals with diabetes face to achieving glycemic control. Severe hypoglycemia can cause seizures, loss of consciousness, and even death.
Dr. Robert Lash, the Society's incoming Chief Professional & Clinical Affairs Officer, will be moderating the chat, featuring discussion on what hypoglycemia is, what the symptoms can be, who is at risk, and how to reduce the risk of having an episode.
Tune into #EndoChat on Twitter on November 9th from 1:00 – 2:00 PM EST to chat with us, raise awareness of hypoglycemia, and to discuss the challenges diabetics face every day.
