Hypoglycaemia and its consequences

Project Details

In collaboration with Novo Nordisk, Amylin Pharmaceuticals and University of Leicester, Prof. Paul is leading a research project to evaluate the risk factors associated with mild-moderate and severe hypoglycaemia, and the long-term consequences of hypoglycaemia. 

The first real-world based study evaluating the cardiovascular consequences of hypoglycaemia in both type 1 and type 2 diabetes patients was published in Diabetes Care 2015; 38: 316-22. The possible risk factors associated with hypoglycaemia differentiated between patients treated with insulin and incretin-based therapies was published in Journal of Diabetes 2015; 7: 60-7
