Hypos are a feature of living with diabetes.
They pretty much can't be avoided entirely, but
their frequency ought to be as few as possible.
Counting carbs, adjusting insulin doses and being wise
about exercise are part of day-to-day living and the
prevention of hypos. But if you're actually having one,
you also need to address it as soon as possible, and try
not to over-do it and get that post-hypo high! In our
feature we look at the array of hypo treatments that are
easy to carry around on a daily basis as well as look at
how new technology is trying to predict and avert them.
