VIDEO: Simon Heller, MB, DM, Talks About the Consequences of Hypoglycemia in Diabetes
Simon Heller, MB, DM, discusses some of the consequences of hypoglycemia in diabetes management. Specifically, Heller points to the effect hypoglycemia can have on the cardiovascular system.
“More recently it’s become apparent that the hypoglycemia may have effects on other parts of the body, and the area of intense interest at the moment is the heart. We now know that hypoglycemia can produce changes within the cardiovascular system; it can increase the risk of thrombosis; it can set up inflammation; [and] it can cause abnormal cardiac repolarization,” says Heller.
In this video, Karen Ignagni, President and Chief Executive Officer, America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP), addresses the importance of joining The American Journal of Managed Care’s Strategic Alliance Partner Program.
