Featured Diabetes Team Question of the Week
- The Featured Ask the Diabetes Team Question of the Week is:
After four years with type 1, my six-year-old son has an A1c around 6. He experiences lows about three or four times a week. Are such lows intrinsically harmful? Is there good evidence that it can lead to long-term sequelae, such as cognitive or memory problems?
