Despite these advances, hypoglycemia remains a significant clinical problem for patients treated with insulin and insulin secretagogues. A recent study of patients with diabetes treated with insulin from 24 countries demonstrated that self-reported hypoglycemia was experienced by more than 80% of patients with type 1 diabetes and nearly half of patients with type 2 diabetes during the course of 1 month.
