Hypoglycemia questions answered on TuDiabetes

Most diabetics struggle with our blood sugar levels (BSL). It is either too high or too low. Too high and the doctors put us on oral medications or even insulin. Too low and we get hypoglycemia. An ideal range for blood sugar is between 70 to 100 mg/dl. Hypoglycemia is defined as low blood sugar.

TuDiabetes.org is hosting a chat on “Hoy & Why Hypoglycemia Symptoms Change Over Time.” The half hour video chat is scheduled for 1 p.m. PDT on 11 December. The session will be presented by Stewart Lozano.

Lozano is a certified diabetes educator and a registered nurse with the White Memorial Medical Center, Los Angeles, CA. For more information, visit www.tudiabetes.org.
