Who can take part in the study?


We invite people who have type 1 diabetes and whose insulin treatment is complicated by hypoglycaemia problems that have persisted despite best efforts at diabetes self-management. Those efforts will have included structured education in flexible insulin therapy (such as DAFNE, or BERTIE or the Joslin courses) and may have included trying insulin pump therapy or glucose sensing. The study will take place in King’s College Hospital and Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospital in London; Sheffield Teaching Hospitals and the Royal Bournemouth General Hospital and we also have a centre in America at the Joslin Diabetes Clinic in Harvard. We expect approximately 96 patients will take part.
