The World Awake report

A research based report summarising the findings of The World Awake survey conducted amongst over 1,000 adults globally with Type 1 diabetes (536 respondents) or Type 2 diabetes (571 respondents). This report evaluates the impact of self-treated nocturnal hypos and the worry that they cause on the lives of people with diabetes who are insulin-treated. The report includes recommendations for improving awareness of and encouraging dialogue around nocturnal hypos between people with diabetes and their healthcare professionals.

"We can see that nocturnal hypoglycaemia is an important issue for people with diabetes where they require practical, personalised, high quality advice from healthcare professionals to help mitigate the frequency and impact of these episodes. This report gives useful insight into what people need from the doctors they consult."
