  • But remember that older (70s+) people have different needs and responses. There is a bidirectional relationship between hypoglycaemic episodes and dementia with increasing age. In frail and older patients, treat (i.e. prevent) *symptoms* rather than arbitrary risk factors or test results!

  • Imo, dietary and lifestyle changes should be mentioned at every step- not just at the start. I feel too many clinicians forget to reinforce the very real impact patients' dietary choices and lifestyles are having on their health.
