Does The Strict Control Of Blood Sugar Increase The Risk Of A Diabetic Driver Getting Into A Car Accident?

A: According to a recent study, yes.  The U.S. News & World Report website recently posted an article on the importance of keeping blood sugar from getting too low.  While controlling blood sugar (keeping it from getting to high) is important for diabetics, controlling it too strictly may lower blood sugar too much, resulting in dizziness or even the loss of consciousness, researchers say.  The results of the new study reveal that those with a history of hypoglycemia or who control their blood sugar too strictly are more at-risk of having an auto accident.  For more results of the study and information for drivers with diabetes, click here.
