Hypoglycemia can present differently from person to person and therefore an individualized approach is imperative to manage each patient’s symptoms and risk factors. With the increasing number of treatment and management options becoming available, deciding on the best course of action can be more difficult.

Watch experts in a lively debate presenting real-life patient cases, and discussing where newer therapies can be best utilized.
This program is suitable for, but not limited to, endocrinologists, diabetologists, and primary care practitioners.
