According to the Daily Mail the NHS choices website has reported 'Diabetes could bankrupt the NHS'. According to their research source - £17 billion a year by 2035. It's a growing problem, and how to recognise and treat someone having a hypo due to diabetes was tackled in a recent blog by Tim Hart 'Would you know if someone was suffering from hypoglaemia or just drunk?'.

Having some basic first aid knowledge around diabetes signs, symptoms and treatments could improve someone's recovery from a hypo.
