Ali Khaoula Ben , Zemni Zeineb , Abdesselem Haifa , Lajili Olfa , Ounaissa Kamilia , Amrouche Chiraz

Background: Aging patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus have a higher risk of developing hypoglycemia. Many studies show the effect of beta-blockers in hiding hypoglycemia symptoms and therefore the occurrence of a severe hypoglycemia. These agents are commonly used in diabetic patients with coronary heart disease. The aim of this study was to assess whether the use of beta-blockersdeteriorates the glycemic control.Methods: We conducted a retrospective ...
