There are many determinants of glycaemic control in patients with type 1 diabetes. Patients with type 1 diabetes and poor glycaemic control have been reported as being more likely to have a greater fear of hypoglycaemia. The relationship between fear of diabetes‐related complications and glycaemic control is unclear, and therefore a brief measure of fear of diabetes complications was developed.
