Hypoglycemia unawareness is a dangerous condition for patients with medication treated diabetes because it is an inability of patients to detect the early warning symptoms of hypoglycemia in order to take corrective action that can prevent severe hypoglycemia. Hypoglycemia unawareness can be reduced or alleviated by careful attention to glycemic management.
