DIABETES: Predicting severe hypoglycaemia — a step forward
The patient-centred approach to the management of hyperglycaemia, encouraged by current guidelines, requires the availability of tools to quantify the benefits and harms of intensive glucose control. Although several scores enable estimation of the long-term risk of developing diabetes-related complications, there are very few validated models to predict the risk of severe hypoglycaemia.
