Glycemic variability fuels hypoglycemia but in one study from ADA 2017 is found to actually help predict hypoglycemic events.

Among studies presented at at the ADA 77th Scientific Sessions were evaluations of hypoglycemia incidence in large populations, the relation of glycemic variability to risk of hypoglycemia, and glycemic variability as an alternative method to predict hypoglycemia.Three stuides are summarized in the slides above; links to abstracts are provided in the captions.
