Older Black Men with Diabetes Have Higher Risk of Hypoglycemia

The risk of hypoglycemic events during hospitalization was 2.5 to three times higher in older black men with diabetes, but not in women, compared with other patients ages 65 and older. Higher hospital hypoglycemia rates were also seen in patients ages 75 and older and those with a medical history of cognitive decline, end-stage renal disease and peripheral vascular disease, researchers said. doi: 10.2337/diaclin.31.2.66 Clinical Diabetes April 2013 vol. 31 no. 2 66-72
