For anyone suffering from hypoglycemia unawareness, you should be aware of a program developed by researchers at the University of Virginia called Blood Glucose Awareness Training (or BGAT) which is now offered on a nationwide and also worldwide basis. Tonight (Monday, May 1, 2006, 9:00 PM EST, 6:00 PM PST), there is an opportunity to "meet" one of the program's developers, Linda Gonder-Frederick in an online chat program. Please join us at DiabetesTalkFest.com (passwords are not required). To attend this online chat program, please visit: http://diabetestalkfest.com/chat/flashchat.php. For more background information about Blood Glucose Awareness Training, please see the following websites: Blood Glucose Awareness Training (BGAT-2) An overview of blood glucose awareness training (BGAT) has been shown to help improve awareness of blood glucose (BG) fluctuations among adults with type 1 diabetes.
