I found out yesterday that on August 18th we lost a bright, energetic, amazing young man – 22 years old – because of hypoglycemia.
Today I am attending the #beyondA1C Diabetes Outcome Measures FDA workshop. I mentioned last week that my response to the call for emails and videos for this workshop was geared toward the need to prevent/eradicate hypoglycemia. Now I feel even stronger about this. People die from hypoglycemia. People who could have lived full, productive lives with diabetes have their lives cut short because of hypoglycemia. It’s time to change this.
Thank you, FDA, for listening to the people who live diabetes every day, and those who work with us. We appreciate the dialogue.
