Increased emphasis on strict glycaemic control of insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) in young patients may be expected to cause increases in rates of significant hypoglycaemia. To evaluate whether this is the case for a large population based sample of IDDM children and adolescents rates of severe (coma, convulsion) and moderate (requiring assistance for treatment) hypoglycaemia were studied prospectively over a four year period. A total of 709 patients were studied yielding 2027… CONTINUE READING
