Repeated episodes of hypoglycaemia can lead to development of hypoglycaemia unawareness and a sixfold increase in deaths in those experiencing severe hypoglycaemia. Severe hypoglycaemia occurs in 35–42% patients with T1DM. However, there is lack of data from our population and hence we aimed to objectively estimate the pr...
