Iatrogenic hypoglycemia, or low blood glucose caused by medical treatment, is a challenge facing people with diabetes and their health care providers. Philip E. Cryer, MD—a Banting Medal recipient and the Irene E. & Michael M. Karl Professor of Endocrinology and Metabolism at Washington University in St. Louis—examines this persistent problem from a pathophysiological perspective.

Intended for diabetes researchers and medical professionals who work closely with patients with diabetes, Hypoglycemia in Diabetes provides direct insight into the causes and consequences of this serious medical condition from one of the foremost experts in the field. Based on the latest developments and trends in the scientific and medical literature, readers are given the details they need in order to be informed about how to identify, prevent, and treat this unfortunate circumstance of the diabetes care regimen.

The second edition contains updated and expanded references from the latest research. The discussion of iatrogenic hypoglycemia has been expanded throughout to cover these new findings and to keep the discussion of the topic relevant.
