Featured Diabetes Team Question of the Week
- The Featured Ask the Diabetes Team Question of the Week is:
Is there any link between hypoglycemia and undiagnosed type 1 diabetes? After shoveling snow, my son "looked low," was 55 mg/dl [3.0 mmol/L] according to my daughter's meter. Should I be concerned or is this common in people after exercising?
See the answer.
